Police Serve Search Warrant in S Philly Sex Assaults

Special Victims Unit investigators along with US Marshals could be seen taking items from a home along the 1300 block of S Chadwick around 5 p.m Thursday. The home isn't far from one of two home invasions and sex assaults that have put the neighborhood on alert.

Police did, however, connect an earlier sex assault on a 35-year-old mother of two inside her South Philly home back in March to this case. During that incident on the 1700 block of S Chadwick Street the suspect was also wearing red gloves and choked the woman, police said.

Neighbors who live near the 1800 block of Rosewood Street in South Philadelphia are on high alert because of an attempted home invasion there following a recent sex assault on the same block and another nearby. (Published Wednesday, May 27, 2015)
