There has been yet another sex assault in Queens, but investigators are telling Eyewitness News that the alleged attack is not connected to the ones involving young girls in nearby South Ozone Park. However, residents in the area are still on edge.

The alleged attack happened early Sunday morning. A man attacked a 20-year-old walking near the intersection of 97th Avenue and 98th Street in Ozone Park. The victim is tells police she was raped.

"For something like this to happen, it's really scary," Ozone Park resident Anthony Ricciardi said.

In nearby South Ozone Park, police are still on the hunt for a child predator. Investigators say a man is responsible for attacking two 7-year-old girls, and exposing himself to a 13-year-old.

In response to the attacks, police have set up a mobile command center in the neighborhood, but that is doing little to ease people's anxiety.

There are also several surveillance cameras on the block, but it is unclear if any one of them recorded this attack of a young woman.
