Women Want Protection After Two Sexual Assaults in Troy
From the CBS 8 Troy Newsroom-- Troy Police are still looking for a man they say sexually assaulted two women, and there is now a $20,000 reward if you can help find the attacker. But until he is caught, women say they're scared and are seeking protection.
Since the two sexual assaults that happened last week, Troy Sport Shop employees say women are piling in purchasing pepper spray, tasers and even handguns.
"It wouldn't hurt to purchase pepper spray or something," says university student Dresden Green.
Police need your help finding the attacker. They say he is a black male, around six feet tall, 250 pounds with a close-cut hair. If you can solve this case, please call Troy Police at (334) 566-5055.
The city of Troy, Troy University, Hunter's Mountain Mobile Estates and a concerned parent are combining their efforts in offering a reward of $20,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person responsible.
