Law enforcement sources said the first attack occurred at 3:30 p.m. on Oct. 3 in front of a store on 104th Street near 39th Avenue.

According to authorities, the 10-year-old girl was standing on the sidewalk when she was approached by the unidentified suspect, who proceeded to fondle her over her clothing in the groin area. He then fled the location on foot in an unknown direction.

The incidents were reported to the 110th and 115th Precincts; neither victim was seriously injured.
