Three people in Denver have been grabbed from behind, thrown to the ground and sexually assaulted, police said.

The attacks started June 1, when we first reported a search for the suspect after a report of an attack in the 700 block of Ash Street. 

The latest was Tuesday, according to Denver police.

Two of the attacks happened just before sunset, at 8 p.m., but one attack happened in broad daylight, at 3 p.m.

The latest attacks happened in the 1400 block of Lafayette Street and 1800 block of Glenarm Street, police said.

Investigators said the victims all described a similar suspect -- a white man in his 30s, about 5 foot 10 inches tall with medium build and short, platinum, blonde hair. An artist created a sketch of the suspect.

If you recognize the man, call Metro Denver Crime Stoppers at 720-913-STOP(7867) or text DMCS plus your message to 274637.
