Philadelphia police on Tuesday warned residents in two neighborhoods to be on the lookout after a woman was indecently assaulted in Pennsport and a man attempted to lure a 13-year-old girl in the Northeast.

In the incident in the Northeast, a 13-year-old girl was walking near her home on Hasbrook Avenue near Godfrey in Crescentville around 3 p.m. Monday when police say a man she did not know pulled over in a car and tried to get her to come over to him. She ran into the house, and the man took off, police said. The man is described as black and in his 30s with a dark complexion and a mustache. He wore a brown sweatshirt and drove a newer-model light-gray sedan.

In a separate incident Monday evening, police said, a 19-year-old woman was walking to her house on Mifflin Street near 3rd in Pennsport when a man approached and indecently assaulted her before fleeing toward 4th Street.

That man is described as black, 5 feet 5 and tall with a stocky build, and wore all black clothing, police said.

Anyone with information can contact the Special Victims Unit at 215-685-3251.
