University of Central Florida police are searching for a man who is accused of groping a woman on campus.
Police have released new images of the alleged attacker.
WESH 2 News has learned the suspect might have targeted more students.
Police have stepped up their presence on campus; a woman felt violated, and they’re taking the incident very seriously.
The incident is similar to another one that happened a month ago.
“Kind of disturbing, too. That someone would be that bold, at that hour,” student Nycholas Vergara said.
The attacker violated a woman on a busy college campus Wednesday evening.
According to officers, the man was lingering near a vending machine, struck up a conversation with the student and then inappropriately grabbed her.
It happened inside Business Administration, building 2.
The woman ran away and called the police.
An alert message went out to all students.
“It’s definitely upsetting that it’s happening on our campus, but sadly, in the world we live in, it’s not very surprising,” Vergara said.
Police do think the incident could be connected to something similar that happened in December in the same building.
UCF police are reminding students to always be aware of their surroundings.
“I would definitely hope the university is taking action to make sure it doesn’t happen again,” Vergara said.
Officers said the person they are looking for is about 5 feet 7 inches, has tan skin and a thin build. The victim said the man had dark, bushy eyebrows and wore rectangular glasses.
Police said they are reviewing surveillance video.
