In separate incidents Saturday, two women reported catching a man performing indecent act. One of them said she had to fight the man off when he tried to grab her, according to Winnipeg police.

Both incidents were reported within hours of each other in East Kildonan and in both cases, the man matched the same general description given by both women.

In the first case, police were called to a report of an assault on Roch Street, near Linden Avenue about 9 a.m. Saturday.

The 17-year-old victim told police she saw a man behind her, performing an indecent act.

He didn’t run off. Instead, the man ran up and tried to grab her, police reported.

She fought him off and last saw him running on Greene Avenue towards Watt Street.

The victim was not hurt during the incident.

A short time later, police were called to the report of a second indecent act, this time of Warman Road and Panet Road

A 19-year-old woman told police she also saw a man behind her, performing an indecent act.

The man said nothing to her, didn’t try to touch her and fled when she ran off.

In both incidents the suspect is described as: Caucasian, approximately 30 years of age, 5’6"-5’9" in height with a small build.

The East District Crime Unit with the Winnipeg Police Service is heading up the investigation. Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact investigators at (204) 986-2857 or CrimeStoppers at (204) 786-TIPS (8477).
