RCMP are warning women who engage in "high-risk activities" about a series of attacks in Chilliwack, B.C.  

Three women have been assaulted in the area of Nowell Street and Princess Avenue over the course of two months, and police believe the same man is responsible for two of the alleged attacks. 

On Feb. 8, a man allegedly assaulted a woman who met him near that intersection, but the attacker left when the woman called out for help.

Later that month, in the same area of Chilliwack, another woman met a man, who police say took her to another location and allegedly physically and sexually assaulted her. 

A third woman was attacked on March 9 while she was out on a date, and police suspect the alleged assailant might be the same one in the Feb. 8 incident. 

Police are encouraging any other women who've been assaulted to come forward.
