The incidents were reported on Monday morning. Parents told The News Station both Boone High School and Blankner Elementary went on brief lockdowns.
According to Orlando Police, around 6:30 in the morning, a Boone High School student was on Ferncreek Avenue walking to school when a man touched her inappropriately.
About two and a half hours later, Orange County Sheriffs Deputies said a student was walking to Blankner Elementary next door, when a man came up behind her and also touched her inappropriately.
During both incidents, the victims said the man was on a bicycle.
The schools sent a message to parents, Monday, advising students to walk in groups.
“I’m picking them up, and right now she had an activity she wanted to go by herself walking around the neighborhood, and that’s a no-no for now,” said one parent.
Detectives plan to release a suspect sketch tomorrow. The suspect was described as a black male, 19-20 years of age, 5'6"-5'7", short curly hair, clean-shaven, medium build, red t-shirt, Khaki long pants, and dark tennis shoes.
