    Prince George's County Police told News4 two sex assaults reported less than a mile apart may be related.

    The first was reported Sept. 8 just before 7 p.m. in the 5100 block of Quincy Street in Bladensburg. Police have canvassed the neighborhood with a sketch of the suspect, who sexually assaulted a woman on a wooded trail.

    Another sex assault was reported Oct. 20 just before 9 p.m. in the 5800 block of Annapolis Road in Cheverly, less than a mile from the Sept. 8 incident. The victim in this case was also pulled into a wooded area and assaulted.

    "Hopefully the predator will be caught. I'm very heartbroken to hear someone's been attacked," one woman said.

    The suspect in both cases is described as a black man in his 40s with a slim build and facial hair. 

    Contact police at 1-866-411-TIPS if you have any information.
