Man Arrested by Albany Police for Two Assaults on Women the Last Two Months

Albany police say they've arrested a 40-year-old man who they believe is responsible for two assaults on women in the past two months.

Cops say Arie Patterson struck a woman while she was walking with her husband on Lenox Avenue last month.

Then about a week ago, police say Patterson walked up to a woman on North Pearl Street and punched her in the chest.

He faces multiple counts of assault, and is behind bars at the Albany County jail.
