Baychester gropings put high school students on edge

Students from Stevenson High School and Truman High School are on edge tonight following a series of sexual assaults that occurred near their schools.

Four women between the ages 14 and 26 were grabbed from behind and sexually assaulted recently in four different locations in the neighborhood.

Police have released a description of the suspect, who they say is 5 feet 6 inches tall, between 22 and 28 years old and weighing 160-180 pounds.

The attacks, which happened in the early morning hours, occurred when the women were traveling to work or school. The most recent incident happened last Wednesday.
