Facing charges in attempted rape

A Northeastern University student accused of sexually assaulting a woman at knifepoint in the Mission Hill neighborhood Saturday was facing charges in a second assault that occurred less than an hour later, prosecutors said.

Patrick Barry, 21, will be arraigned on charges of assault with intent to rape in West Roxbury District Court Wednesday in connection with the second attack. Both assaults occurred early Saturday morning near Huntington Avenue, within a mile of Barry’s apartment, Boston police said.
