They say the same man struck again a little more than a week later while riding a bike by 13th and Morris streets. He approached another woman, who was able to escape without being attacked. 

The third incident happened Dec. 30. Cops say the man, who was once again on a bike, pushed a woman to the ground and attempted to cover her mouth as she was entering her home on Fitzwater Street. 

She was able to fight him off.

Police are asking anyone with information to contact them.
