    Burleson police are trying to determine if a man who approached a teenager in her driveway on Wednesday is connected to two sexual assaults in rural Johnson County.

    The two attacks around country roads 604 and 605, just east of Burleson, on Sept. 27 and July 8.

    On Wednesday morning, a man approached a 17-year-old who was in her garage in the 2600 block of Pinnacle Drive in Burleson. Police said the man asked her if her parents were home and told her very sexually explicit things.

    The girl's dog began barking, scaring the man away.

    Burleson police said the man matches to some extent the description of the attacker in the sexual assaults.

    Investigators are interviewing the girl about the incident.

    "We want them to interview that individual and see if this could potentially be the same suspect now that's moved out of the county into our area or it's somebody different," Cmdr. Chris Havens said. "We just don't know at this time."

    Police are asking Burleson residents to be on alert, be aware of their surroundings and vary their routines.

    Anyone with information on the cases is asked to call police.
