Baltimore County police believe that sexual attacks on three women over the past three weeks in the Randallstown area were JTC committed by the same man.
Police said the man apparently follows the women from stores and accosts them as they are about to enter their homes.
The latest attack occurred Tuesday when a Woodridge Apartments resident was forced into her apartment at knifepoint by a man who attempted to rape her on the kitchen floor. Police said the woman screamed and the man fled.
On Sept. 11, a 75-year-old woman was about to enter her home when a man shoved her inside at knifepoint and raped her.
Police said a 25-year-old woman who lives about two miles from the elderly woman was sexually assaulted Sept. 4 by a man armed with a knife when she got home.
In each case, police said, the victims had been shopping.
