WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - The Purdue Police Department is seeking the public's help in an investigation into three reported sexual assaults on or near campus in the past few weeks.
Police say in the three incidents, a college-aged male on a skateboard grabbed women in a sexual manner.
The incidents happened near the area of Purdue Memorial Union, University Street Parking Garage and just east of the Union, just off campus.
Each of the incidents occurred from early to middle afternoon.
Police are seeking a young man shown on video footage near the area of one of the attacks who might be able to provide more information.
"We would like for him to come and talk with us or for anyone who might know him to let us know so that we can get in touch with him," Purdue police Lt. Fred Davis said.
Jeanne Norberg, Director of Public Information for Purdue, said the University is doing everything possible to find the man responsible.
"Obviously we take this seriously. It's not something that we're going to tolerate here on campus. We ask everyone in the community to help," said Norberg.
But some students said, even after hearing about the incidents, they aren't concerned for their safety.
"I feel Purdue is still a safe campus. They have the Safe Walks and everything like that," said Danielle Welsh.
"I always walk with friends anywhere I go, so I always make sure I have a buddy," said Jenn Weinschenk.
Anyone with information should call Purdue police at 765-494-8221 or its anonymous tip line at 765-496-3784. You can also use the anonymous WE-TIP hotline at 800-78-CRIME.
