Police are releasing a sketch of a man they believe is responsible for sexually assaulting three women in five days.

All of the attacks occurred in or near the Mt. Pleasant neighborhood in Northwest Washington in the early hours of the morning. The first was one week ago.

In each instance, the attacker groped the victim, and one of the women was attacked by a man armed with a knife who stabbed her when she tried to escape. Police are investigating the crimes as related.

Police are offering an award of up to $1,000 for information leading to an arrest and conviction in the case.
