SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) -- San Francisco police detectives say they have identified the woman who told two local blogs that she was raped on Monday, June 18th in the Mission District.

The victim spoke with the two online publications but never filed a police report about the attack in the early morning hours near 19th Street and Capp Street.

Now investigators say they have identified connections between this crime and another sexual assaults in the same area involving two men with similar descriptions.  On June 15, a woman says two men approached her from behind, grabbed her, and tried to rape her on Erie Alley near 13th Street.  That's just five blocks from the most recent crime.

One of the two men is as short as 5'4 while the other is taller, about 5'10.  Police are putting more detectives on the two cases to look for more similarities that could lead to the arrest of the pair of rapists.
