Police are searching for a man wanted for two sexual assaults that happened just minutes apart in the Bronx.
Investigators say the first attack happened this past Friday around 1 a.m.
Police say an 18-year-old woman was walking near Sedgwick and Bailey Avenues when she says a man grabbed her from behind and began choking her.
She says he pushed her to the ground, took off her shoes and began smelling her feet.
When she got up, police say the man ran off.
About 20 minutes later on Park View Place, police say a 24-year-old woman was grabbed and choked.
She told police he tried to open her pants, but ran when she fought him.
Police believe the same suspect is responsible.
He's described as being about 30 years old, around 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 230 pounds.
