A 48-year-old woman became Scottsdale’s second rape victim in as many weeks as she walked home alone early Wednesday, police said.

"She was walking south at 68th Street when she was attacked from behind and forced into the bushes," Scottsdale detective Sam Bailey said.

The 2 a.m. attack was in the 3100 block of North 68th Street, about a mile from the location of a March 12 rape. Police say there is no evidence linking the attacks.

The man in Wednesday’s rape did not have a weapon, while the man who attacked a woman on March 12 in a Scottsdale park near Hayden and Osborn roads had a knife, Bailey said.

After the Wednesday assault, the woman fought free and ran home.

She waited until afternoon to call police. "She was afraid of outstanding warrants (against her) so she didn’t report it until 4:30 (p.m.)," Bailey said.

He did not know if the woman had any warrants or what infractions they might have been for.

She described her attacker as Hispanic, 5 feet, 2 inches tall, and stocky.

The March 12 attacker was described as white, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a medium build and light brown hair. The attack took place between 9 and 9:30 a.m., police said.
