Two arrested in cold case sex assaults on Cleveland's east side

Posted: Updated:
CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Two more suspects have been picked up for cold case sex assaults on Cleveland's east side - one from 1999 and one from 2006.

Records show two men were picked up on warrants for rape.

In the 1999 case, the suspect is accused of grabbing a woman and forcing her into an abandoned building.

In the 2006 case, the suspect is accused of breaking into a home through a window in the middle of the night and attacking a woman in her bed.

Both suspects are now in the city jail. As of Tuesday afternoon, they were still under investigation and had not been formally charged.

Meantime, Cleveland Police have been looking at suspects with a history of sex assaults to see if they might be connected to recent attacks on women on the east side, especially one broken up by witnesses as a woman was dragged behind a building. No one has been arrested in that case.
