PORTLAND Police are trying to track down a man who inappropriately touched two teenage girls in separate incidents on TriMet.

Just before 9 a.m. on Feb. 6, a man approached a 13-year-old girl who was waiting for the bus at Northeast Dekum Street and Northeast Durham Avenue. The man then used sexually explicit language and inappropriately touched the teen, police said.

Detectives then learned about a similar incident on Jan. 23 when a man sat next to a 14-year-old girl on a TriMet bus and made sexually explicit comments before inappropriately touching her.

Police release surveillance footage of the man Friday.

The suspect was described as a clean-shaven African American man in his mid 20s to early 30s, 5-foot-10, weighing 175 lbs., with black hair, and brown eyes.

Anyone with information was asked to call police at 503-823-0249.
