PALISADES PARK - Police in Palisades Park are looking for a suspect after two women claimed to have been sexually assaulted within three days of one another.

Last Thursday, a woman said she was knocked to the ground and groped while getting off a bus on Board Avenue and Second Street.

On Sunday, a second woman says she was attacked in a similar manner on Broad Avenue and West Edsall Boulevard.

Police believe it may have been the same man, and they have released a composite sketch from the description given by the two women.

The suspect is described as Hispanic, about 5 feet 6 inches to 5 foot 8 inches tall and approximately 30 to 35 years old.
