Help Police ID the DU Groper -- Composite Sketch

University of Denver Neighborhood Crime Alert: The DU Groper struck again Thursday, Nov. 17, at about 9PM on the 2000 block of South High Street. A woman walking alone said she was was accosted by an unknown male, who grabbed her from behind and squeezed her buttocks. When she started screaming the perp fled toward High and Asbury Street. 

This is the fifth groping in the neighborhood over the past few months. DU officials and police warn that the perpetrator's behavior could escalate into more violent crimes against women. Police are asking DU area residents to be aware of their surroundings and stay out of dimly lit areas (which seems like a good idea at any rate). We also urge students (and everyone)  to lock their doors and windows.

The suspect is described as white, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, with a thin build. Police say he is about 19 years old and was wearing a gray hoodie with black stripes down the arms. Crimestoppers has offered a $2,000 reward for his capture. If you have any info, call Crimestoppers at 720-913-STOP (7867) and keep in mind that you can remain anonymous.
