LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 10, 2003) -- University of Kentucky Police are investigating the report of another sex abuse case on campus. A female student reported that an unknown suspect approached her near the entrance of Ovid’s Café at the William T. Young Library and inappropriately touched her chest. The incident occurred at approximately 9 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 9.

The male suspect is described as in his late 20s to early 30s, approximately 6 feet tall, medium build, light brown hair combed straight back, and a dark complexion, possibly tanned. He was wearing a cream-colored fleece pullover with a print on it and faded blue jeans.

Travis Manley, public information officer for UK Police, said this is the fourth sex abuse case reported to UK Police this semester. Three of the cases occurred on campus and one off campus. “The suspect in this latest incident is not considered to be the same suspect in any of the other reported cases,” Manley said. “His description and method of the incident do not match the other cases.”

UK Police have issued a campus-wide safety alert through flyers posted on campus, information on the UK Police Web site, and an e-mail being sent to all UK students and employees. The alert offers information on the Dec. 9 incident and safety precautions such as not walking alone on campus after dark, using the campus escort service, and being aware of the location of emergency phones on campus.
