Police Warn Women

Four women have been attacked in parking lots in an area bordered by Nonconnah, Winchester, Kirby, and Clark. The assaults happened over the past two weeks between 7 p.m. and 1 a.m. Police say the women were all in their 20's to early 30's with no apparent ties or similarities. And all live in apartment complexes with gates and bright lights.

Just last month police arrested a man for a series of sexual assaults in the Winchester-Millbranch area, but they still aren't sure the man acted alone. Since the first of the year there have been five rapes of adults, five fondlings of children, and one man who exposed himself in that area.

Memphis police say sexual assaults are hard to predict and to prevent. In the meantime, police are urging continued vigilance and increasing patrols.
