The first attack happened last Friday about 1:10 a.m. The man approached an 18-year-old woman from behind and choked her until she fell to the ground, police said.

He then took off her shoes and began to sniff her feet. The woman got up and the suspect fled the scene, near Sedgwick Avenue and Bailey Avenue.

The second attack happened  20 minutes later. The suspect approached another woman from behind and choked her.

The victim, 24, fought back as the man tried to open her pants. The suspect fled from the scene at 2816 Park View Place.

Police say the suspect is 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighs about 230 pounds and is about 30 years old.
