BROOKLYN - Police say they're investigating another attempted sexual assault in Brooklyn.

Cops say the latest in nearly a dozen attacks in the borough happened in Windsor Terrace just before midnight last night. They say a woman was groped from behind and screamed before the suspect fled the scene.

Sources tell News 12 Brooklyn that the suspect is a Hispanic male about 5 feet 9 inches tall.

The assault happened close to Sunset Park and Park Slope, where several of the other incidents have taken place, including another on 60th Street yesterday morning.

After this recent assault, neighbors say they are taking more precautions than ever. Husbands are now walking the dog late at night as some men say they want to be out more often to make sure there is a ?presence in the neighborhood.?
