ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – Authorities said that they have arrested a man suspected of sexually assaulting at least three women at the University of Texas-Arlington campus. Police now also believe that there could be more victims.
School law enforcement officials were first made aware of the case on Friday morning after a report from the Central Library, located in the 700 block of Planetarium Place. A female student said that the suspect sat next to her on the building’s fourth floor and started up a conversation. He then allegedly put his hand in the female student’s shirt.
The woman attempted to leave, police said, but the suspect followed. He allegedly pushed her up against a bookshelf, but the student was able to escape and contact authorities.
While police were searching for the suspect, two more victims came forward with similar reports. Officials now fear that there may be additional victims out there who have not yet reported anything to the police.
Authorities were able to locate the suspect. He has been described as a dark-skinned 23-year-old Indian male standing 5 feet 9 inches tall. He is said to have a medium build, brown eyes and short black hair. He also has a thin mustache and beard. His name and photograph have not been released.
