CHAPEL HILL — Charges have been filed against a man suspected in a series of assaults on women at a popular Chapel Hill recreation area.

Police have charged 19-year-old Enrique Vasques with two counts of assault on a female. Officers say the suspect rode his bike along Bolin Creek Trail looking for women, sneaking up behind them, then grabbing them.

Vasques will be in court next month, and police say the investigation is continuing.

Officers say six women have been grabbed since last Thursday.
