SEATTLE (AP) - Authorities suspect the same man is responsible for recent assaults at Washington adult sex stores.

KOMO-TV reports that a female worker at the Castle Megastore in Tacoma was sexually assaulted early Monday and a male employee was beaten up. The Lovers adult store in Puyallup was robbed Friday night and a female worker was nearly kidnapped.

Security has been stepped up at the store in Tacoma with a guard being placed out front.

Police say they believe the man in the Tacoma attack is the same man who got into the Lovers adult store in Puyallup just before closing Friday.

Along with extra security at the Castle store, police in Puyallup say they are going to increase their patrols around the Lovers store especially at closing.
