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.

    Details about the nature of the fourth victim’s encounter with the suspect and how she managed to get away have not been released.
