A Blackwood man has been arrested in the sexual assaulting of a jogger on the Ben Franklin Bridge on Monday, and could be charged in another incident involving a bridge pedestrian, according to the Camden County Prosecutor's Office.
Joseph Haskins, 47, of Blackwood, was apprehended by Delaware River Port Authority police Wednesday after he allegedly groped a second woman.
Monday's attack occurred about 4:30 p.m. as the woman ran on the walkway, which is above the span's roadway, according to the Prosecutor's Office.
After she was sexually assaulted on the Camden side of the bridge, she went to the Philadelphia side and was taken by friends to Episcopal Hospital. Philadelphia police referred the case to Camden police, according to Jason Laughlin, spokesman for the Prosecutor's Office.
