(PORTLAND, Ore. ) - Portland Police Central Precinct officers have taken two reports this week about a suspicious man approaching women and, in one case, inappropriately touching them.

The first incident occurred on Saturday July 12, at approximately 3:00 p.m., when the suspect approached a volunteer at the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry, located at 1945 Southeast Water Avenue. The suspect made suggestive comments to her, hugged her and kissed her while she was trying to pull herself away from him.

The second report, on Monday July 14, was made at Southeast Clinton Street and Milwaukie Avenue. The reporting party described being approached by the suspect asking her to pull down a side street.

Officers have been following-up and contacted construction workers on the Tillikum Crossing project who told police that they have seen the van in the area.

The suspect in both cases is described as an African American male, 30-40 years old, 5'9" tall, medium build, close-cut or shaved head, goatee, wearing a light yellow or green safety vest.

The suspect claims to be a security guard in the area of OMSI and the new Tillikum Crossing bridge over the Willamette River.

The suspect vehicle is described as a dark blue or black minivan with "SECURITY" taped to the side door.

Anyone seeing this vehicle or with information about the suspect is asked to call the police non-emergency line at 503-823-3333.

Anyone personally encountering the suspect should immediately call 911.
