Black Man Who Attacked A Jogging Woman Was Arrested The Previous Month For Assaulting Another
Though he was arrested for attacking a woman at a train station just weeks earlier, 26-year-old Dwyarrn Burton was out on the streets. If he had been in jail where he belonged, he wouldn't have been able to viciously attack another woman who was out for a jog.
Police say Burton assaulted a 46-year-old woman at around 2:15 p.m. on Sept. 17 at a bike path in Mattapan, MA. According to a spokesman for the Massachusetts State Police "The victim was able to provide troopers with a detailed account of the event. She stated her attacker knocked her to the ground then got over her and struck her numerous times before attempting to drag her into the wood line".
Weeks earlier, Burton had been arrested for indecent assault on a woman exiting a train. He followed her, assaulted her from behind and fled. Transit police tracked him down according to the victim's description, and she was able to positively ID him as her attacker. This raises the question of why he was back on the street just weeks after this event.
Like is often the case with violent criminals, they seem to seldom be incarcerated for long, and are quickly back on the street, where they soon victimize someone else. I would be curious to know the race of both victims in these cases, but doubt we'll ever know.
