Ithaca Police are investigating the reports of two possibly related incidents that happened Thursday night.
Shortly after 7 o’clock, officers met with a distraught female in the area of Cascadilla and North Geneva Streets who claimed she had been assaulted. The woman said she was walking along when a man came up from behind her and forcibly grabbed intimate parts of her body. The woman yelled for help and was assisted by other people in the area. The suspect fled on foot.
About 20 minutes later in the 4-HUNDRED block of North Tioga Street a male exposed his genitals to a woman walking in the area. The descriptions in both of these incidents are that of a white male, approximately 5’8″, slim build, wearing dark pants, a black or dark-colored hooded sweatshirt and a dark colored baseball cap. Both incidents are being investigated as separate from the other until each is complete.
Anyone in the area of both incidents is encouraged to contact Ithaca Police.
