PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — The Philadelphia Attorney’s Office has announced charges against a man wanted in connection with two recent sexual assaults.
Tyree Blake, 30, was arrested this week on charges of indecent assault and molestation.
Blake is accused of fondling a woman without consent at a wawa at 33rd and Market Streets on July 30.
On August 7, authorities said Blake petted another person at a SEPTA trolley station at 19th and Market Streets.
A 20-year-old female victim told police the attack happened after she got off an eastbound streetcar. She said she was just walking up the steps to exit the train station when an unidentified man sexually assaulted her.
Police are investigating a similar attack that took place at 1401 JFK West Plaza on Wednesday, August 3, although no charges have been filed in connection with the incident.
Authorities say Blake was caught on surveillance video wearing a NASA sweatshirt in at least one of the attacks.
In an unrelated incident last month, a man also wearing a NASA shirt was accused of raping a woman on a SEPTA station. He has since been taken into custody.
