Women fight off attackers in Mission Hill

Residents of the diverse Mission Hill neighborhood were shocked to hear police reports of two violent assaults on women along the often-busy Huntington Avenue corridor early Saturday morning.

In separate but similar incidents that police said may be related, a man wielding a knife grabbed a young woman from behind and attempted to sexually assault her. Each victim managed to fight off her attacker, but not before suffering a stab wound that was not life-threatening.
