Police in Brooklyn are looking for a man who tried to grab two young girls. The attacks were minutes apart in Crown Heights and happened in broad daylight.

One girl's mother says her daughter was terrified. She says her daughter was approached on the street near her home and attacked by a man who wrestled with her and lifted her skirt at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday night.

When the girl screamed, the man took off.

Police later learned the same man accosted a girl, 13, in the same vicinity just ten minutes earlier. In that case, the girl also escaped unharmed.

Police are examining a number of surveillance videos in an attempt to identify a suspect.
