The Flagstaff Police Department is currently investigating two different incidents of assault involving a suspect described as either a Hispanic or Native male, 16-20 years old.

During the first incident which occurred in the 800 block of N. Leroux, on July 21, 2015 at approximately 5:30 pm, the suspect was wearing a white t-shirt and khaki colored pants. The victim stated she was followed by the suspect as he rode a gray or silver colored bike. When she got off her bike and began walking up the stairs to her apartment he parked his bike and ran up behind her and grabbed her buttocks and then rode away.

The second incident was reported on July 25, 2015 at approximately 1pm on the urban trail which parallels Beulah just south of the University Heights subdivision. The second victim described the suspect as a Hispanic or Native male, approximately 16-20 years old, with curly dark hair and a “lazy eye.” The suspect was wearing a navy hoody, black shirt and blue jeans. The victim described the suspect’s bike as a dark in color mountain bike.

The victim was running south on the urban trail when the suspect passed her north bound on his bike then turned around and came up behind her. When he got close enough he reached out and grabbed her buttocks and then rode away.
