Fourth Attack On UF Campus, Police Say

GAINESVILLE, Fla. — Police are looking for a man suspected of tackling a woman who was walking on the University of Florida campus.

The Gainesville Sun reports the student kicked the man and he ran off Sunday night. The woman, who was not injured, called police.

It was the fourth attack on women on campus in recent days. But university police spokesman Maj. Brad Barber says it’s too early to say whether the incident on Sunday night is related to the others.

Police set up a perimeter, stopping all vehicles well into Sunday night as the investigation continues.

A similar attack occurred Friday when a student says a 6-foot-tall man with short brown hair and a beard grabbed her near a school library. She punched the attacker and he ran away.
