PORT CLINTON — Law enforcement agencies in Ottawa County are investigating a pair of home-invasion rapes that have occurred in the Port Clinton area in the last three weeks.
A 36-year-old Port Clinton woman was raped Wednesday in her home on Adams Street, Sgt. Mike Toney said. The woman was sleeping and awoke about 3:30 a.m. to find the man in her bedroom, he said.
On Jan. 18, a man entered a Portage Township home about 5:30 a.m., awakened a 20-year-old woman, and sexually assaulted her, according to the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.
Sergeant Toney said the woman who was assaulted Wednesday did not get a clear look at her attacker. Authorities believe the incidents may be related and are asking anyone with information to call Port Clinton police or the Ottawa County Sheriff's Department.
