Halifax Police are hoping the public can help them identify a possible suspect in a rash of indecent acts and one case of sexual assault.

Investigators have released two photos and are urging anyone who may have information about the identify of the man to contact police or www.crimestoppers.ns.ca.

Police believe the man may be responsible for four indecent acts and a sexual assault, all of which took place on December 4 in the south end of Halifax.

The first incident took place around 1:30 p.m. Police say a man followed a woman walking in the area of Lucknow Street and Fenwick Street.

It’s alleged the man yelled sexual comments at the woman and grabbed his crotch. The suspect is described as a black man with a light complexion, early twenties and about six feet tall. He was wearing a blue jacket with white sleeves, and blue sweat pants at the time.

The second case took place just 20 minutes later. Around 1:50 p.m., a woman was walking on Victoria Road near Lucknow Street when a man approached her, pulled up his jacket and exposed himself. Police describe the suspect as a black man with a light complexion, in his twenties and wearing a blue ski jacket.

The third incident took place about 10 minutes later, around 2 p.m.

Police say a man approached a woman who was walking on Fenwick Street near Morris Street. He touched her in a sexual manner over her clothing and grabbed her by the arm.

The suspect in that incident is described as either a black man with a light complexion or an Aboriginal man, in his early twenties, about six feet tall and very skinny. Police say he was wearing a blue jacket, dirty, light coloured pants, a grey touque and had a black backpack at the time.

The fourth incident happened around 2:15 p.m., police say a man approached a woman walking on Fenwick Street, stopped directly in front of her, dropped his pants and exposed himself.
