ANCHORAGE (AP) A 33-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the beating and attempted sexual assault of a woman on an Anchorage bike trail and police said they're trying to determine if he was involved in two other recent attacks.

Walter B. Kenworthy was arrested Friday on charges of second-degree sexual assault and fourth-degree assault. He was being held at the Anchorage Jail on $50,000 bail.

Kenworthy is accused of attacking a 35-year-old woman who had stopped to fix a flat bike tire on a trail May 30.

In the other cases, a 17-year-old girl was attacked on a trail May 23 and a 52-year-old woman was attacked at a downtown park June 6.
