NEW BRUNSWICK — Rutgers University police are looking for a man in a reported groping that took place the same weekend as a pair of sexual assaults.

Police said that a female victim "affiliated with Rutgers" was sitting at New Brunswick's College Avenue Student Center on Sunday around 5:15 p.m. when a man approached her.

The suspect started talking to the woman and then dropped an item on her lap. He then groped an "intimate area" while getting the item back, according to police. The victim was not injured.

Police described the accused groper as a six-foot-tall Black male in his late twenties or early thirties weighing about 180 pounds. He was wearing a black baseball cap, sunglasses, and a blue vest.
