Gadsden Police are investigating two separate reported sexual assaults.
On Thursday at around 8:00 pm, a 20 year old woman told police she was raped by a man she met earlier that day.
The woman said around 2:00 pm that day she was walking on Robinson Avenue when a black male drove up beside her and the two talked then exchanged phone numbers.
They met around 7:00 pm outside the Victory Station in the 900 block of East Broad Street. The man told the victim he would drive her to work if she would buy the gas.
They drove to Fuel City on East Meighan Blvd. where she bought gas and also bought the man a beer.
He drove the victim to a field off Tuskegee Circle and asked her if she could get out of a choke hold.
She tried to leave but he grabbed and raped her. They drove back to Fuel City, the man left and the victim called police.
Meanwhile in a separate incident, at around 10:00 pm that same day, a 43 year old woman told police she was raped by a 47 year old male acquaintance.
The woman said she fell asleep on the couch at the residence of a friend at the Princeton Park Apartments and woke up to the acquaintance holding her down and raping her.
When the man left the apartment she called police.
Police responded and located the man outside the apartments.
Charges are pending.
