Ohio University is warning students to watch out for a man wanted in a sexual imposition case.

The suspect is a white male in his early 20’s, approximately 6’0 tall weighing 150-160 pounds with short blonde hair. Authorities say he was wearing a grey fleece top with hood over a dark ball cap, blue jeans and black tennis shoes.

Authorities said that the suspect grabbed and pushed a female student in the lower Seigfred parking lot near Sunnyside and Maplewood Drives and then a short time later grabbed another female in the same area before fleeing on foot.

The student reports the man had followed her on College Street and into the parking lot where the incident took place early Sunday morning.

University and Athens Police encourage students to walk with others, stay on well lit paths and report suspicious people.
