Police are hunting for a man with a foreign accent and "dirty" hair after a teenage girl and woman were approached on the same day in Canterbury.
Officers have launched an appeal for witnesses following the incidents in the city yesterday.
The first happened in Gas Street near the Castle Row car park just before 4pm when a man tried to grab a teenage girl.
Detective sergeant Lewis Tompsett said: "The girl was walking along the road when a man tried to grab her. She pushed him away and ran off.
"The offender may have left the scene in a small, black hatchback."
The second incident happened in Watling Street just before 11.20pm when a woman was approached.
Sgt Tompsett added: "A man grabbed the victim’s wrist and when she pulled away he ran off towards the High Street.
"We are linking the two reports and are appealing for witnesses to contact us if they saw either incident or recognise the description of the offender."
The man is described as being tanned, about 6ft tall, with dirty, messy brown medium length hair.
He had a foreign accent and was wearing grey three-quarter length tracksuit-style shorts and a white t-shirt.
Anyone with information is asked to phone police on 01843 222289 or Kent Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 quoting reference 18-0941.
