SEATTLE -- Police in Seattle are investigating four separate reports of women who say they've been attacked since Friday.
The Seattle Times said that police so far have not found any links among the assaults but are investigating the possibility that the incidents are related. They caution women to remain alert to their surroundings when they're walking or jogging.
A woman jogging around Green Lake was grabbed early Monday by a man who tried to pull her into some bushes but she screamed and broke free.
A woman walking near a grocery store on Sunday evening in northwest Seattle said two men in a white van stopped near her and one man tried to shove her into the vehicle. She fought free and the van drove off.
On Monday, a third woman told police she'd been tackled to the ground early Sunday as she left a bar in north Seattle. She says she screamed, punched and kicked and the man ran away.
A fourth woman said she was pulled into bushes and sexually assaulted Friday evening as she walked home from Northgate Mall.
