Prince George's County police are using a helicopter and multiple K9 teams in a search for a man who sexually assaulted two women and robbed several individuals at gunpoint this afternoon in Hyattsville.

The first incident occured around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday afternoon when the man followed two women into the woods after they left their apartment building in the 6700 block of Belcrest Road. He then robbed them at gunpoint, sexually assaulted one of them and fled from the scene.

Shortly after, the suspect came upon a group of three teenagers — two boys and one girl. The suspect robbed them, then sexually assaulted the teenage girl.

Police say the male suspect is 20-30 years old and was last seen with colorful, distinctive pants.

Those with information on the suspect are urged to call police at 1-866-411-TIPS.
