SUNSET PARK - Police are investigating another confirmed sexual assault in Sunset Park this morning.

Police say that a 35-year-old woman was sexually assaulted at 5:30 a.m. around 6th Avenue and 60th Street.

Officials say this assault may not be connected to the string of sexual assaults that have occurred in Sunset Park and Park Slope in recent weeks.

Investigators say the woman was attacked by an Asian man who came up from behind her, pulled her hair, fondled her and stole her purse.
