KALISPELL, Mont. -

Kalispell police are on the lookout for a suspect involved in three sexual assaults against two high school students.

Detectives say the first assault was reported last week.

A female student told police she was walking home near Flathead High School when a man shoved her against a fence and tried to kiss her.

She was able to get away, but since then two more incidents have been reported in the area against another teenager on two different days.

"It was extremely frightening for both of them,” said Flathead High School Student Resource Cory Clarke. “Luckily, no one's been hurt to this point, and we've increased patrols, and obviously everyone is looking for the suspect.”

The suspect is described as a white, 18 to 24-year-old, around 6-feet-tall, with short, almost shaved blond hair, and facial hair under his chin and neck.

Anyone with information is asked to call Officer Clarke at 751-3476.
