Police were searching for a man who groped two women on the Fullerton College campus Tuesday.
The crimes occurred within a few minutes of one another about 6:35 p.m. Tuesday on a walkway that connects the 1100 and 1300 buildings with the 100 and 300 buildings, according to a statement posted on the college's website.
"Two female students reported that an unknown male suspect groped them in their crotch," the statement said.
The suspect was described as a man in his mid-20s, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing 160 pounds, with black hair and a cropped beard. He wore a plaid shirt and light blue jeans, and was last seen leaving campus and running toward Lemon Street.
