A Portville woman, who instructed police to withhold her name for safety reasons, was allegedly attacked by William Phillips around 9 p.m. Tuesday.

“(Phillips) has a history of being a sexually violent offender. How he ended up on the streets of Portville, New York, I will never know,” Mayor Emley said.

“He noticed the female and thought she’d be an easy target for whatever reason,” Mayor Emley said. “As she left Wilson Farms (on South Main Street), a surveillance camera revealed that he left right behind her.
