WASHINGTON — Police in Prince George’s County, Maryland say they have arrested a suspect in connection with two separate sexual assaults that happened within two hours.

Twenty-two year old Al Louis Bell, of Silver Spring, is accused in an assault that occurred around 8:20 p.m. Friday, and another that happened around 10:10 p.m. Both incidents happened in Temple Hills.
