(DERBY, Kan.) — A Derby neighborhood is on alert after a woman was sexually assaulted in her garage, the second such crime in just over a month.
Derby Police said both crimes happened in the Glen Hills subdivision. The latest occurred Wednesday night around 9:00 p.m.
A woman was in her garage when a man wearing a ski mask and holding a knife threatened and sexually assaulted her, police said.
In late March or early April, a woman was raped in her home not far from the location of Wednesday's assault."It is scary, it's our safety," said a woman who asked only to be identified as Cindy. "This is our neighborhood. This is Derby."
A dive team from the Derby Fire Department spent much of Thursday searching a pair of murky ponds. They were looking for any evidence that may have been discarded by the suspect.
"It is simply an attempt to be thorough in our investigation," said Derby police Chief Robert Lee.
