Riverside Park Attacks On Monday Believed To Be Linked To First Jogger Assault

Police released a sketch of the man they believe is behind two attacks on women at Riverside Park.

Cops investigating a second attack on a woman in Riverside Park now believe the crimes are linked, according to the New York Daily News.

The attacks on the two women Monday morning were separated by about 20 blocks and 20 minutes. Cops said Friday it appears the same man preyed on both victims.

Marisa Cortright, 19, was jumped while jogging about 6 a.m. near a path at W. 120th St. She was thrown into a concrete wall, police said. Cortright briefly lost consciousness, suffered bleeding on the brain, a fractured cheekbone, and cuts to her face, head and neck, police said. The brute got away with her iPod.

Cortright was still at St. Luke's Hospital on Friday, but is expected to make a full recovery.
