Serial Groper Caught
A 41-year-old Minneapolis man confessed to groping 10 female students after being arrested by University Police Tuesday.
The Star Tribune reported that police arrested the man shortly after a woman reported being groped as she was walking near the McNamara Alumni Center.
Officers spotted a man on the West Bank matching the description given by the victim.
Dispatchers notified police of another groping that had happened 20 minutes earlier on Washington Avenue SE as they were arresting the man.
The suspect was held in a squad car while the two most-recent victims were brought to the area and identified the suspect as the man who grabbed them.
The assaults started on Dec. 9 and all took place on or near The University of Minnesota campus.
The suspect approached the women at all times of the day and night and usually was on a bicycle, University Police Chief Greg Hestness said.
The man was taken to the Hennepin County jail.
