   Middletown Police are seeking a man who attempted to abduct two juvenile females during the afternoon of March 27.

   Police said the suspect was described as an Asian male, 23-30 years old, 5-foot-10, average build, wearing a white Aeropostale hoodie jacket with a zipper on the front, designer blue jeans, black sneakers, black hair, buzz cut, light facial hair moustache with some hair on his chin.

   Police said that two 12-year-old girls were walking on Cedar Lane Road near Frog Hollow Golf Course at 3:30 p.m. when the suspect began following them. The victims stopped at the nearby playground to see if he would pass them. The suspect lingered in the area, so the girls left the park to walk to one of their homes.

   The suspect followed them to the area of Building 1850 on Congressional Drive where he caught up to them and wrapped one are around the face of one of the girls and reached down in an attempt to pick her up. The victim fought off the suspect and screamed. The suspect dropped the victim onto the sidewalk and fled on foot.

   The victim and her friend fled to the friend’s nearby residence and notified her mother, who called the police. The MPD conducted a K-9 track that led through streets in the community of the Legends, across part of the golf course and ended on Reybold Road.

   At the same time, a second call was received by the MPD from a parent who said his 14-year-old daughter was accosted by the parkland at the intersection of Ashland Boulevard and Greenland Boulevard.

   In the second case, the suspect came up behind two teenage females who were walking by the tree line next to the parkland at the intersection, and one of the females was grabbed at the waist by the same suspect of the earlier incident. The victim screamed and the suspect let her go and fled.

   The suspect fled back into the woods, and a K-9 track was conducted with negative results.

   Middletown Police are warning the public of the incidents, and ask that any information that can help apprehend the suspect be called into 376-9950.
