Another attack

    A woman who was choked in Kensington in later October has come forward as a possible victim of the so-called Kensington Strangler.

    The woman told police she was choked — but not sexually assaulted — by man in Kensington on Oct. 20 near where other recent attacks have taken place.


    Police told Action News the attack could be linked to that of a woman in early October, and to the strangulation deaths of two women in the area.
