OKLAHOMA CITY -

Police in Edmond and Oklahoma City are comparing notes on two recent attacks on female joggers. 

The attacks happened 10 days and 15 miles apart, but both victims were young women, both attacks occurred between 9 p.m. and midnight and both victims were struck in the head during the assaults. 

Former FBI Agent Jeff Jenkins says if both attacks were committed by the same perpetrator, expect the suspect to do it again.

"When they commit their first crime and it was easy and they got away with it, it's like thrill seekers, and they're going to commit the crime again and again," Jenkins said.
