    Police are reportedly investigating yet another sexual assault in Brooklyn not far from the area where a string of similar attacks have kept the neighborhood on edge since March.

    The latest victim is a woman in her 20s who was walking her dog in Windsor Terrace last night when a man approached her from behind, claimed he had a knife and groped her, according to the Daily News.

    The victim's alleged attacker apparently ran off after she started screaming. The incident happened on 17th Street near Seventh Avenue at about 10 p.m., according to the News.

    Police sources told the paper it was too early to discern whether the alleged assault was connected to the 13 similar incidents that have plagued Windsor Terrace and nearby neighborhoods like Park Slope and Sunset Park over the last few months.

    Meanwhile, police released a new poster showing sketches of five suspects wanted for the other attacks in the borough.

    On Tuesday, police arrested a 26-year-old man for groping a woman on Monday night near the subway station at 36th Street and Fourth Avenue.

    Adolfo Martinez, 26, was charged with forcible touching and third-degree sexual abuse for allegedly groping an 18-year-old woman near the Sunset Park station.

    Sources told NBC New York that investigators are looking at his possible connections to some of the other assaults.

    Martinez is scheduled to appear in court today to answer questions about a 2007 arrest for sexually assaulting another woman in Chinatown, reports the News.

    He's being held without bail. It wasn't immediately clear if Martinez had an attorney.
