EAST FLATBUSH - Police are investigating an incident in an East Flastbush neighborhood where residents say two young girls were attacked by the same man just minutes apart.

A volunteer security force says an 11-year-old girl was attacked behind a tractor on Maple Street this evening, but was able to fight off the man.

Minutes later, the security force says another girl was attacked just down the street, possibly by the same suspect.

Police say they have obtained surveillance video of the first attack and will investigate further.
