Police said the man they’ve sought in connection with five other attacks, mostly in Center City, is responsible for victimizing yet another woman – this time in South Philadelphia.

According to police, a 33-year-old woman was getting off a bus at 19th and Federal streets shortly before 5 Saturday morning when a man approached with a gun and forced her to walk down Ellsworth Street.

Along the way, the man struck her with his weapon and forced her to enter a nearby playground on Ellsworth Street near 20th.

“The man then physically and sexually assaulted the victim,” said one investigator who asked that his name not be used. “He also robbed the victim, but not a lot of money was taken, only about $11.”

As for the man’s unusual interest in his victim’s feet, the investigator said, “There was something that he did that was consistent with the other attacks and leads us to believe that this is the same guy.”

He declined to be specific.
