KENT, Wash. -- Kent Police believe they are looking for the same suspect who recently sexually assaulted two teenage girls.

On Saturday night, police said the suspect attacked a teen walking by herself in the 12900 block of Kent Kangley Road. The next evening, near 26200 116th Avenue Southeast, just north of Kent Kangley Road, another teen victim was attacked while she walked alone.

In both cases, the victims described a similar looking suspect, and said he approached them in the same way -- telling them he had a weapon and forcing them to move to a secluded area.

The suspect was described as a light skinned black male, about 18 years old, 5-feet 8-inches tall, with a slender build and short black hair.

Kent Police have increased patrols in the area. Officers ask anyone with information to call them at 253-856-5808. Callers may stay anonymous.
