ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

At least two homeless women reported being raped recently under similar circumstances in downtown Albany.

Early in the morning of August 6, a woman said she was sleeping outside a motel at 419 West Oglethorpe Boulevard when a man started raping her.

He beat her with a baseball bat when she tried to fight him off.

Officials said another woman was treated at the hospital recently after a similar attack, but she would not report the attack to police.

Officers and prosecutors are working to see if the attacks are connected and if there have been any other rapes.
