Winnipeg police are looking for a suspect believed to be responsible for three separate sexual assaults on Tuesday.
In all three instances, the female victims were approached by an unknown man riding a bike.
The first happened around 9 a.m. in the area of Munroe Avenue and Besant Street when a 14-year-old girl was touched inappropriately. The man was scared off by a witness and fled.
Then at 11:30 a.m., a 17-year-old girl was inappropriately touched in the area of Roch Street and Sydney Avenue.
Later at around 2 p.m., a 21-year-old woman walking in the area of Manhattan Avenue and Grey Street was touched when the man tried to strike up a conversation with her.
None of the victims were physically hurt in the incidents.
The suspect is described as a black man in his late teens to early 20s, between 5’8″-6’ tall with a thin athletic build and short black hair. He was wearing a white T-shirt with ‘KEC’ on the back and jeans. He was riding a small, dark bike.
Anyone with information is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-2857 or Crime Stoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
