Man Gropes Women in Spring Garden

Two women were groped in the Spring Garden section of Philadelphia Thursday night, police said.

One woman was groped at 16th and Spring Garden Streets as she was getting into a cab around 7 p.m.

Shortly after, another woman was groped at 15th and Green Streets, one block away.

As of midnight police didn't think the gropings were related to two recent rapes of women as they left cabs in the same area.

No immediate description was given of the alleged attacker.
