After an attempted rape over the weekend, an area of Baltimore was canvassed by police. 
 
The Special Investigations unit looked for clues at the intersection of Eden and Pratt Street after an attempted rape Saturday night on Central Avenue. A woman was asking a man for public transportation information when he grabbed her by the neck and forced her into a nearby alley. Luckily she was able to escape.
 
Police came back to this area because a similar incident happened in February when a man tried to assault a woman by the subway station on S. Eden Street. That woman was also able to escape, Investigators say they're looking for a man who's responsible for both incidents. 
 
"We put the composite sketch out," Detective Nicole Monroe said. "The weather's changing. I don't want to focus too much on clothing because clothing can change. I would just like people to look at the composite sketch and look at the facial features. It's somebody that we believe frequents this area and is comfortable in this area and the people in this neighborhood may know him." 
 
If you have any information, you're asked to call police.
