Criminal Justice Quote: A Rapist On The Loose at the University of Florida

     The University of Florida has stepped up campus security and released surveillance video of a possible suspect after a fourth woman was assaulted in recent weeks. The latest incident was reported Sunday September 7, 2014 when a woman was tackled from behind near the campus library's parking lot. She managed to fight off the assailant and run away.

     Police say the string of assaults started at 9:30 PM August 30, when a 21-year-old woman told police she was beaten and almost raped by an unknown man on the Gainesville campus. A second was reported hours later, at 2 AM August 31, with a victim dragged into a wooded area. Witnesses to this assault chased the man away.

     A third woman was approached Friday September 5 by an unidentified man outside the school library…The woman in the third incident fought back. The assailant came up behind her and grabbed her. They had a brief conversation before she punched him in the face. The man fled the scene on foot…

     Police say the four victims all describe the man as white, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 6-foot-4 or 6-foot-5 and weighing 250 pounds.
