Police investigate possible ties between attacks on women

COLLEGE PARK, Ga -- Investigators in College Park and Henry County are comparing information from two separate crimes against women to see if the same suspect may be responsible for both.

Both crimes happened in October. A 56-year-old College Park woman was taking a walk on Main Street when a car stopped beside her and the driver tried to get her in his car. Also in October, a 66-year-old Ellenwood woman was raped in her home. Police say the same man raped her in July.

Both victims gave descriptions of the suspects to a sketch artist and the sketches are eerily similar. "And it seems that there's some similarities in terms of the composite drawings," said College Park Police Chief Keith Meadows.

Police said she wandered away from a convenience store on Godby Place near Old Bill Cook Road in College Park.
