Police at the University of Utah are searching for a man who sexually assaulted two women on campus Friday.
The man was seen inside a woman's locker room at 8:01 a.m., where victims spotted him peeping at them as they dressed.
Later that afternoon, at about 4:40 p.m., the man reached around and groped a woman as she was walking through a lower campus academic building.
Then, at 7:39 p.m., he followed a woman to her car and groped her as she attempted to get into her vehicle, said Sgt. Garth Smith of the University of Utah Police Department.
As soon as the women called attention to the situation, he fled, Smith said.
"It was kind of eerie as each woman called throughout the day and gave us the same information," he said.
Police are searching for the man, who stands between 6 feet 3 inches to 6 feet 5 inches tall, weighs about 250 pounds, and is between 30 and 35 years old. He has brown hair and blue eyes.
Smith said sexual assault perpetrators often escalate, and they want to catch this man before he attacks again.
"We're just asking everyone to be aware of their surroundings, and if you see someone that matches this description on campus, give us a call," Smith said.
The UUPD offers police escorts for people between buildings or between cars and buildings on campus, Smith said.
Anyone wanting to use that service, or if they have any information about the assaults, should call dispatch at 801-581-7944.
The University of Utah reported seven sex offenses on campus in 2010. The university reported nine offenses in each of the previous two years.
