A second woman told police that a man grabbed her while she was walking to the bus stop around 5:30 a.m. on March 24. The man threatened her and tried to drag her into the woods, but she fought him off and ran away.

The women described their attacker as a man in his 20s, between 5 feet 7 inches and 6 feet tall. He has a dark complexion and a medium to large build. He was wearing dark clothing and a dark, hooded jacket.
