Grub attacks girl, 13, on separate days
POLICE are hunting a man who indecently assaulted a teenage girl in Melbourne's north.
Investigators believe the man approached the 13-year-old in Kalman Rd, Epping, about 7.20am on February 22.
After a brief conversation, the girl continued walking to a friend's house to be driven to school.
But two days later the same man approached the girl as she again walked along Kalman Rd.
This time he grabbed the victim and kissed her on the face.
On March 13, the man approached the teen for a third time at the intersection of Kalman Rd and Pindari Ave.
He pushed the girl before holding her against a fence and indecently assaulting her.
The girl pushed the offender away and ran to the safety of a friend's house.
Police want to speak to a man described as 50 to 55 years old of Asian appearance.
He had a skinny build with a pot belly, was about 175cm tall with a black fringe.
He wore a green jumper, grey tracksuit pants and grey leather lace-up shoes during the third incident.
Meanwhile, detectives hope public assistance will help them find a man who exposed himself to a 17-year-old boy at a Preston bus stop last month.
The teenage boy was outside a Preston shopping centre when he noticed the man staring at him just before 2pm on February 15.
The offender, who was about two to three metres from the victim, then exposed himself.
Police believe the man continued looking at the teen before walking away.
The victim returned to the same bus stop about 2.35pm and saw the offender walking towards him from a multi-level car park.
The teenager ran into the shopping centre when the offender began to run after him.
He managed to run away from the man.
Police want to speak to a man described as in his 50s, with a medium build, olive skin and short brown hair.
He wore a red polo shirt, jeans and sneakers.
