CINCINNATI (FOX19) - North College Hill Police say they are looking for a man wanted in connection to four sexual assaults in their area.

He’s wanted for attacks that happened in the 1300 to 1500 block of W. Galbraith Road.

Police said two of the attacks happened to two high school girls were walking west on Galbraith Road heading to North College Hill High School when the assaults occurred.

One of the most recent assaults reportedly happened on November 25th. A victim reported that the suspect exposed himself.

In response to the assaults, the North College Hill School District sent a letter to parents warning them to have their kids walk in groups, not take shortcuts in areas with little foot traffic and be on the lookout for suspicious-looking people.

And on Wednesday, police hosted a class at North College Hill High School. They told us they talked with teen girls about how to protect themselves in these situations.

Police also say they have beefed up their presence in the area.
