BREAKING: Campus groper at large

Yesterday morning at approximately 5:30 a.m., a female UA student was walking on campus when a man grabbed her breast, according to a campus watch released by UAPD.

The woman was walking near 615 N. Park Ave., a location near the Park Student Union on the UA campus. She said that the man grabbed her over her clothing.

The man is described as being around six feet in height. The student said that he was wearing a blanket around his shoulders. The female did not suffer an injury.

UAPD has issued tips in the campus watch for personal safety and urges students to speak up if they see anything suspicious.

Tips for safety include:

– Remain alert of all surroundings

– Alert a friend of your whereabouts and what time you should be home

– Travel in well-lit areas, utilize the buddy system and avoid dark and deserted areas

– Utilize the UA Safe Ride program

– Call 911 if you feel threatened or suspect you are being followed. Move to a well-lit area.
