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.
