Woman sexually assaulted in Somerton

A 38-year-old wo­man was as­saul­ted sexu­ally and robbed in a Somer­ton al­ley late Sat­urday, ac­cord­ing to a re­port by tele­vi­sion sta­tion 6abc.

The in­cid­ent oc­curred just be­fore mid­night when the vic­tim was walk­ing near her home along the 10000 block Jeanes St. and a man ran up to her, pressed a sharp ob­ject against her neck and dragged her be­hind homes. 

The at­tack­er as­saul­ted the wo­man sexu­ally, grabbed her purse and ran, the sta­tion said, cit­ing Phil­adelphia po­lice sources.

The wo­man was treated at Epis­copal Hos­pit­al. 

Po­lice have not re­leased a de­scrip­tion of the at­tack­er. ••
