LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) -- Police are searching for a man accused of attacking and trying to strangle a woman in Sherman Oaks.

He is the suspect in at least three separate attacks, one on Feb. 9 and others on Feb. 12 and March 9.

In the March incident, around 8:20 p.m., a woman was walking her dog on the sidewalk when the man approached her from behind, grabbing her by the neck and throwing her to the ground.

The suspect then punched the woman and attempted to strangle her.

He is described as a Black man between 25 and 35 years old, 5'6", 150 pounds, and was last seen wearing a red Nike hoodie with blue jeans and red shoes.

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact the LAPD's Van Nuys Division at 818-374-0085.
