    Police are holding a news conference this morning about the Kensington attacks.

    At 9 a.m., Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles H. Ramsey, Capt. James Clark, commanding officer of homicide, and Capt. John Darby, commanding officer of the special victims unit, discuss recent sexual assaults and strangulations of at least three women in the city’s Kensington and Juniata Park sections.

    We’ll have the latest out of the conference.

    Yet another woman was attacked yesterday morning, as WHYY’s Elizabeth Fiedler reports, and as the Inquirer reports, the FBI is now involved.
