Police are combing through a Hyattsville, Md. neighborhood, searching for a man who sexually assaulted two women and robbed several other individuals Tuesday afternoon.

Two women in their 20s walked out of an apartment in the 6700 block of Belcrest Road in Hyattsville, Md. around 1:30 p.m. and were approached by a man with a gun, Prince George’s County Police said.

The man forced them into a wooded area and robbed them, then sexually assaulted one of them, police said. He was startled by a noise and ran from the scene.

Detectives say the suspect robbed two teen boys and a teen girl not far from the first crime scene. The suspect then sexually assaulted the teenage girl, police said.

For precautionary measures, nearby Northwestern High School was locked down while police searched for the suspect. Students were released from the school just after 4 p.m.
