DENVER -- An assault suspect who targeted the same victim twice near the Cherry Creek Reservoir is being sought by Denver police and they need your help to find him.

On Monday and Tuesday, the female victim was reportedly approached by an adult male suspect who spoke to her and physically restrained her on both occasions in the area of East Dartmouth Avenue and Havana Street. The victim was eventually released both times.

The suspect is described as a black male with a dark complexion in his 30s. He is thin and is about 6-foot-2 with black, matted, curly hair. He has light brown bloodshot eyes and is clean shaven. The suspect was last seen wearing a dark-colored muscle shirt, gray sweat pants with the "And1" logo on the left hip and the right bottom pant leg. 

He has a 1-to-2 inch light-colored, raised scar on his right shoulder, about a quarter of an inch thick. Police said he was a slow, deep voice without stutters or accents and he smelled like cologne, cigarettes and marijuana.
