Grand Forks Police are investigating two assaults reported within a few hours of each other overnight.

A 20-year-old woman says she was attacked while walking home from work just after 11:00 p.m. Thursday night near 18th Street and 22nd Avenue South. She described her two attackers as dark-skinned men, each wearing black and blue bandannas and one wearing dark clothing.

Police say the woman was transported to Altru Hospital with obvious physical injuries. No word right now on her condition.

A 43-year-old man was arrested in connection with a separate attack a few hours later. Police say Fredrick Thomas is in custody for aggravated assault, terrorizing and felonious restraint.

Thomas' girlfriend reported being held against her will, physically assaulted and threatened with a knife early Friday morning. The victim escaped to a neighbor's house to call for help.
