At 9 a.m. in the area of Munroe Avenue and Besant Street Tuesday, a 14- year-old girl said she was approached by an unknown man on a bike. She said he inappropriately touched her then was scared off by a witness. At about 11:30 a.m. near Roch Street and Sydney Avenue, a 17- year-old girl was walking when an unknown man on a bike rode by and inappropriately touched her.

Then, at about 2 p.m. in the area of Manhattan Avenue and Grey Street, a 21-year-old woman was walking when an unknown man on a bike attempted to strike up a conversation and then touched her in an inappropriate manner. None of the victims were physically hurt during the incidents, police said.

On Thursday at about 2 p.m., police saw a man matching the description of the suspect in the 200 block of Grey Street. He was arrested without incident. Bekele Shiburu, 23, has been charged with six counts of sexual assault.
