    Coral Springs police are warning residents about a suspect who has tried to sexually batter two women in the same neighborhood.

    Police released a sketch of the suspect Wednesday who has been targeting women in the Wyndham Lakes area.

    According to police, the suspect grabbed a woman from behind and pushed her to the ground as she was walking along Wyndham Lakes Boulevard Monday morning. The woman screamed for help and kicked the suspect, who fled the scene.

    A similar incident was reported in the community on Feb. 24, with the suspect in that incident matching the description of the suspect in this week's attack.
