Three UNR students say they've been ambushed by a man who grabs them inappropriately, then walks away.
Campus police say the man sneaks up on women from behind, rubs his body against them, then leaves. All three incidents happened during day-light hours on and around the campus. Police say none of the victims has been injured, but they're taking the reports seriously because the incidents could escalate. Fortunately, most students seem to be aware of what's going on, and are already taking steps to protect themselves.
Police now have a sketch of the suspect, based the description of one victim. They're looking for an African American male, age 25 to 35, about five-foot-five to five-foot-eight. He has a stubble-like beard and could be wearing sunglasses or a hat. If you have any information, call campus or Reno police.
