For the second day in a row, a man has approached a child in the St. James neighbourhood.
Winnipeg Police said an Asian man approached a 13-year-old girl late Tuesday night near Ness Avenue and School Road.
A similar looking Asian man had twice approached an 11-year-old boy on his way to school Monday morning near Sharp Street and Lodge Avenue.
On Tuesday night, the suspect attempted to engage the 13-year-old girl in conversation but she refused and the suspect drove off.
In both instances, the description of the suspect and the car he was driving are similar. In the Tuesday night incident: Oriental in appearance, about 30 years of age, with medium build and short black hair, driving a newer-looking, dark blue, medium size, 4-door car.
From Monday morning: an Asian man, between 30-40 years of age, short black hair and clean shaven, driving a four-door, navy blue car, possibly a Pontiac.
Despite the similarities, Patrol Sgt. Monica Stothers said investigators are looking for two different suspects.
Anyone with information is asked to contact police at 204-986-3296 or Winnipeg Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477.
