As a woman, we are always taught to be on guard. We usually travel in at least pairs and are more on aware of our surroundings at night. Well now there is a man who is preying on women and performing lewd acts in front of them in the middle of the day.  Troy Police are looking for a man who approached women on a few different occasions in broad daylight. The first incident happened on July 29th at 3:50pm in Downtown Troy near Broadway and Third Street. The man performed a lewd act in front of two women. Then that following Wednesday (August 2nd) near the gorge off Cypress Street in Troy near the Poestenkill Creek gorge, the same man approached two other young women around 1:50pm. The man was again performing a lewd act. Then he took it further and tried to assault and abduct one of the women. The two women fought him off and got away.
