Man gropes woman from behind in Montgomery County

A woman was hugged from behind in Montgomery County on Wednesday in a sexual assault that may be related to two earlier incidents, the county police said.

The woman was walking on Tuckerman Lane near Grosvenor Place about 11:25 p.m., police said. The assailant squeezed her breasts before she screamed and he ran, police said.

On July 10, a man suddenly wrapped his arms around a woman from behind near the same place about 11 p.m. He, too, ran after she screamed, police said.

In the first incident, on June 5, a man wrapped his arms around a woman from behind near Landon Lane and Geranium Street about 10:20 p.m. Her screams sent him running, police said.

No attempt to take property was reported in the incidents.
