POLICE need your help in finding a man who was responsible for two sexual assaults in Coffs Harbour earlier this year.
Detective Sergeant Scott Goodhand said that at midnight on May 11, the man attacked a Coffs Harbour woman, 19, at the intersection of Harbour Drive and Hardacre Street.
At 8pm on June 10, the man assaulted a Coffs Harbour girl, 16, on the corner of Harbour Drive and Boambee Street.
He is described as Caucasian in appearance, aged in his 20s, with short/shaved spikey blond hair, a thin to average build, about 178cm to 180cm tall.
On both occasions he was wearing dark clothing including long, dark pants.
The assailant left behind a pair of black Holden boxer shorts at the scene of the May 11 attack.
"We believe the perpetrator was living in the Harbour Drive area at the time of the offences," Sgt Goodhand said.
"We need assistance from members of the public and urge them to study the computer image of the man, and a photograph of the boxer shorts, which we have released to the press.
"All information will be treated in the strictest confidence.
"Both victims are looking for closure on the matter."
