Police: 2 Laurel girls assaulted in half-hour

LAUREL, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County Police say they’re looking for a man who inappropriately touched two girls in separate incidents in a half-hour period.

Police said Friday that the assaults happened the morning of Sept. 23 on Briarwood Drive at Briarcroft Lane in Laurel. In both cases, the young teenage victims say the man approached them as they were walking, touched them inappropriately, and then ran away.

Police plan to canvas the area on Friday morning to pass out flyers that include a sketch of the man, described as black with a heavy build and with dreadlocks pulled into a Mohawk.
