Philadelphia police are investigating two groping incidents in Spring Garden that occurred less than a half hour of each other in a one block area.

The first occurred at 16th and Spring Garden streets.

Police say a man groped a woman as she was getting into a taxi.

The suspect fled and within minutes another woman reported being groped at 15th and Green streets, which is about a block from the first incident.

Both victims describe their attacker as wearing dark clothing including a scarf over his face, and a fur-collared jacket.

Police say both incidents appear to be related.
