There have been a number of similar attacks in the area recently.

Police said two runners were indecently assaulted over the past two weeks in separate but similar attacks by different teenage suspects.

"A young man approximately age 13 to 16 is riding by on a bicycle," Lt. John Stanford told CBS 3’s Walt Hunter. "And while he’s passing by, he inappropriately touches the female on the rear end, it’s indecent assault."

Police presence at the Schuylkill River Trail was increased in September after a Green Philly blog post reported on a string of assaults that had taken place on the trail.
