Two women were sexually assaulted, one while hanging outside an apartment building and the other while on the porch talking on the phone, last night in Paterson’s eastside, according to Paterson Police.
A woman, 20-year-old, was hanging outside with two friends and a stranger on Tuesday night, at around 9:45pm, outside an apartment building on 8th Avenue and East 24th Street, where she was raped after following a stranger into a nearby apartment.
The woman left her friend and went with the stranger inside an apartment in the building, where the suspect unclothed her, and sexually molested the victim.
A woman was sitting on the porch, in a home on East 23rd Street, speaking on the phone, at around 2am, Wednesday morning, when the assailant made his way onto the porch without her noticing.
The victim was then undressed, and raped by the suspect.
Police are investigating both incidents.
