Ottawa police are investigating two reports of a male following teenage girls on foot in Orleans earlier this week. 

Both incidents happened at 3 p.m. in the area of Trim Road and Watters Road, but police say they don't know if the suspects in both cases are the same person.

The first incident happened on March 6. The first suspect has been described as an English-speaking male between 16 and 28 years old with short, wavy dark brown hair, stubble, and a red plaid jacket and beige boots.

In the second incident, which was on Friday, police say the suspect is also an English-speaking Caucasian male between the ages of 16 and 28, with light brown skin, short black hair, stubble, and wearing a red jacket with black accents. 

Anyone with information regarding these investigations is asked to call Ottawa Police Service east district investigations at 613-236-1222, ext.3566. Anonymous tips can be submitted by calling Crime Stoppers at 613-233-8477(TIPS), or toll-free at 1-800-222-8477.
