Chicago Police released surveillance photos and video Thursday of a person of interest wanted in connection with the sexual abuse of two girls last weekend at their Lincoln Park homes.

The girls, ages 11 and 13, were sexually abused by the man while they slept in their beds after he broke into their homes, police said.

The first case was reported about 2 a.m. in the 500 block of West Grant Place, police said. The second occurred 20 minutes later and less that two blocks away in the 400 block of West Belden Avenue.

The man was described as white, 5-foot-6 and 160 pounds, police said. He had short brown or strawberry blond hair and was wearing a button down shirt, slim fitting dark pants and white gym shoes.

Police said he smelled like cigarettes and previously said they believed he was a smoker.

Anyone with information about the pictured suspect or about the attacks is asked to contact Area Central detectives (312) 747-8380.
