SUNSET PARK - Bail was denied today for a man suspected of at least one sexual assault in Sunset Park.

Adolfo Martinez, 26, was arrested in connection with an attack on an 18-year-old woman Monday, when police say he allegedly groped her on 36th Street as she left the train station.

Initially, police believed he was only responsible for the one attack. But after interrogating him, NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly says he made statements about previous encounters and the investigation is ongoing.

Kelly says they still believe more than one individual is responsible for the 13 cases of sexual assault reported in the neighborhood, and police are still patrolling the area.Arrest made in Sunset Park attackCops: Latest sex assault not connected to others in BKBK residents look to protect themselves from sex assaults
