Has the so-called Fairmount Park Rapist struck again?
Philadelphia Police await DNA tests that could link the Fairmount Park Rapist to the attempted sexual assault of a teenager earlier this month.
A 17-year old girl was attacked near Devil's Pool and Cresheim Creek in Chestnut Hill on April 11 while she was jogging. The teen told police she fought off a man who tried to sexually assault her.
The girl fought off her attacker and luckily didn’t suffer any major injuries.
But now police want to know if her alleged attacker is the same man that has reportedly been preying on women since 2003. Investigators say he's assaulted three female joggers and murdered one of them.
Police will be out in the park Saturday distributing leaflets and hoping to generate new leads on the case.
