More Mount Vernon rape news
The Baltimore Police Department has come under criticism from community leaders and a radio-talk show host (Ed Norris, a former city police commissioner) for not notifying the Mount Vernon community of a series of rapes.
Information continues to dribble out. The attacks occurred in the community along St. Paul, Calvert and Cathedral streets. In many attacks, a man entered second-floor windows, gaining access from a fire escape.
This afternoon, police for the first time released the dates of the attacks (they wouldn't give out the locations, even just by block number):
7/19/08; 9/16/08; 9/29/08; 10/29/08; 11/6/08; 11/9/08
The attack on Sept. 16 occurred outside on Cathedral Street, and may not be linked to the other five, according to police. Authorities have released two sketches which can be found here.
