TROY, Mich. (WJBK) -- Police have released a sketch of a man who they believe attacked a woman at an Oakland County park, chased another and harassed several others.

Police in Troy say four separate incidents have occurred over the past few weeks where the unknown suspect approached female residents.

On Friday, police say the man approached a woman exercising in Bloomer Park and asked for directions. The victim began to guide him when he grabbed her and threw her to the ground. The victim fought back and the suspect fled.

On the same morning, police say the suspect chased after another woman who was jogging and asked her where she parked. The woman continued to run and was able to flee the scene.

Police say on several occasions, the suspect approached Troy homes and asked residents to use the bathroom.

He is described as a middle-eastern male, 20-22 years old with a thin build and thick, wavy dark hair. He has a long scratch or scar on his right cheek and has been seen wearing a black North Face jacket, black jogging pants with a white stripe and white shoes.

His vehicle is a bright red, two-door sports car with a large amount of chrome details, and dark tinted windows.

Anyone with information on the identity of the subject please call Troy Police at (248) 524-0777.
