Police: Man Attacked Woman, Touched Himself Near 2 Others

Emmanuel Bonilla background

Police in Rhode Island have charged a man they say assaulted several women on or near a bike path.

Lincoln police charged 29-year-old Emmanuel Bonilla, of Central Falls, with felony assault, robbery and multiple counts of disorderly conduct Tuesday.

Officials say Bonilla touched himself inappropriately as he drove behind a 62-year-old woman walking near the I-295 Visitors Center on Saturday.

Police say the next day Bonilla followed a 22-year-old woman running on the Blackstone Valley Bike Path as he again touched himself. Investigators say the suspect also beat a 31-year-old woman out for a walk and stole her phone later that day.

Bonilla was charged with exposing himself on the same bike path in 2015.

It could not be determined if he had a lawyer.
