According to investigators, the man tried to force a woman in her 20's into her home around 7 a.m. but didn't succeed.

About an hour later, he did make his way into another women's home and sexually assaulted her.

The man was armed with a gun.

"Obviously in broad daylight, he did not have a problem being seen when he attempted to victimize those people," said Kiara Delva with the City of Miami Police Department. "We are considering him armed and dangerous."

Police describe the suspect as a black male, last seen wearing a dark blue long sleeve shirt, jeans, dark shoes and a baseball cap.

"He was armed with a firearm and we consider him armed and dangerous," said Kiara Delva with the City of Miami Police Department. "Now it appears that he is hiding."

Police say that due to the sensitivity of this case, they cannot give even a general location of where the assaults occurred.

Authorities remained on the scene into the early evening. Residents of the normally quiet neighborhood were clearly on edge.

"Everybody should be concerned when there is someone who could do so much damage to someone," said a neighbor who did not want to be identified.

Anyone with information is urged to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-TIPS.
