String of sexual assaults near University of Michigan campus raises concern

A third woman was recently assaulted near the University of Michigan campus, according to the Detroit Free Press.

Police say the victim had been walking toward campus when a man approached her and pulled her behind a wall where he assaulted her.

A warning has been issued by the university that discussed proper safety while walking as the suspect continues to roam the streets.

The victim said the perpetrator was a white male, approximately six-foot-five inches tall and had brown hair and eyes.

This description is a bit different from the assailant described by two other victims who were also assaulted recently. According to their accounts, their attacker was a man in his late teens or early 20s with olive skin and short dark hair.

Police are trying to piece together all three assaults to see if any similar patterns can be concluded, although as of now, it's not certain if the attacks are at all related.

Campus and Michigan police are investigating and are continuing to urge that students be extremely cautious when walking near or on campus. They suggest carrying pepper spray and walking in groups at all times as an added measure of protection until those responsible for the attacks are found.
