UCLA authorities are looking for a man who is accused of grabbing numerous women on or near campus. An unidentified man is accused of groping three different women in the upper thigh area on Thursday, KTLA reports. The women—all UCLA students—said this wasn't the first time they've had issues with this same guy, some of them dating back to March. No one was injured in any of the attacks.

The man is described a young Asian male between 18 and 22 years old, 5'10" and medium build with short, messy hair and glasses. He was last seen wearing a black and white striped polo shirt and dark pants with black tennis shoes and a backpack.

Another female student was attacked Thursday morning by a man with a knife, according to ABC 7. Campus authorities say the woman was jogging on Veteran Avenue near Sunset Blvd. around 5 a.m. when a man came up behind her and grabbed her. The man tried to sexually assault the woman, but she was able to get away and reported the incident 20 minutes later.

The man has been described as about 6 feet tall, medium or large build, and was wearing black pants and a black hoodie.
