WHEATON, Md. (AP) — Montgomery County police say four women have been attacked at night over the past several weeks in the Wheaton and Aspen Hill areas. 

Three of the victims were sexually assaulted, and one was raped. Police aren’t sure if the crimes are connected but are exploring that possibility. 

Police say in all but one of the attacks, the victim had just gotten off a bus when she was accosted. And in the first three cases, the victim was forced into a wooded area. 

The attacks occurred on Oct. 26, Nov. 20, Dec. 1 and Dec. 4. The suspect has generally been described as a man between 25 and 30 years old, with a thin to average build.

    Ok , I know we have to be PC. But come on. Is the guy, white, black, brown, green, blue. beard, Or are the police just looking for a man. get real.

      No, we do not have to be PC when we are talking about a criminal attacking people. This happened in Mo Co; odds are, this is a black man they are looking for. It’s not racism, it’s a fact about the population of that county. Take it how you like.

    The police are looking for a Hispanic male in his early 20’s. They think it may be the same guy in all the attacks since each lady described almost the same person. Not sure why the lack of details here. I read the whole thing on another news sites.

    Since they are looking for a Hispanic male, are there any takers on a bet his illegal? PG Co., reportedly, has the highest population of illegals, don’t you know.
