SALT LAKE CITY -- Police are on the lookout for a man who groped several female students on Salt Lake Community College's south campus.

The two most recent attacks occurred last month.

Police say both victims were inside the school building when they were assaulted.

The first was a stairwell on May 16. The other attack was on May 28 in a hallway on the second floor of the same building.

Police say both victims are minors. Investigators are looking at surveillance video to try and identify the attacker before he strikes again. Now students and faculty are on guard.

“I`ve always felt safe going here and I’ve never had any problems so it makes me kind of nervous there is a problem or that it could become a bigger problem,” said Sarah Mcintosh a student at SLCC.

The suspect is described a black male in his mid-20s. He is approximately 6 feet tall with a medium build. Police say additional victims or anyone who has information should contact Utah Highway Patrol at 801-957-3800.
