University Park PD need public's help after incidents near SMU

Posted: Updated:

University Park police released two sketches Thursday after suspects approached female SMU students in recent days.

Police said both incidents occurred in the overnight hours near the SMU campus. No one was hurt, but police are seeking the public's help in identifying the men. Police said they are treating the two incidents as separate despite similar suspect descriptions.

The first incident happened Sept. 27 about 3 a.m. in the 3400 block of Normandy. Police said a black man approached her and tried to grab her arm. The student screamed and ran away.

The victim described her assailant as about 6 ft. tall with a muscular build, in his 20s and wore a white polo shirt, khaki shorts and brown shoes.

The second incident happened Monday about 3:30 a.m. in the 6200 block of Hillcrest. Police said a black man made suggestive remarks to a woman walking to campus. He got within an arm's reach of the student when she intentionally became agitated, according to police, which caused the suspect to flee.

The victim described the suspect as about 6 to 6'3 tall , 18-21 years old with a slim muscular build, clean shaven and wore a white and red lettered SMU ball cap, shorts and a long sleeve button-down shirt with the sleeves rolled up.

Anyone with information is asked to contact University Park police at 214-363-3000.
