    Assault-Fondling

    The University of Washington Police Department is investigating multiple incidents in which the same male suspect is alleged to have fondled women at the Intramural Activities
    Building (IMA). In each case a woman was groped in a public area in the building. Two incidents occurred on Jan. 31, 2016, between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m. One incident occurred on Feb. 3,
    2016, at 4 p.m. An additional incident may have occurred that day, as well. In each of these incidents the suspect is described as a white man, approximately 18 to 22 years old;
    5'9" to 5'11"; short, light blond or light brown hair; and a slim-to-average build. On the dates the incidents occurred the man wore a dark gray T-shirt. On one occasion, the
    suspect was also wearing knee-length black basketball shorts. If you see this individual or observe other suspicious activities or persons, call 911. If you were a witness to any of
    the described incidents, please call the University of Washington Police Department at (206) 685-8973.

    Crime Prevention Tips for Similar Incidents:
    * Call 911 immediately in an emergency.
    * Avoid confrontations whenever possible.
    * Remove yourself from potentially dangerous situations as soon as possible.
    * Be cognizant of your surroundings at all times.
    * On campus, call Husky NightWalk: 206-685-WALK (9255) for a security guard escort to various locations on campus, 7 days a week.

    If you suspect criminal activity, some helpful information to pass on to the police:
    * Clothing descriptors - look for layers under the visible layer, other distinctive design identifiers, etc.
    * Physical characteristics - height, weight, eyes, hair, mannerisms, scars/tattoos.
    * Direction of travel (by foot or automobile).
