Police are searching for a man they say robbed and attacked two women near the University of Louisville this week.
The first robbery occurred Wednesday morning around 6:30 near Fourth Street and Industry Boulevard, according to the Louisville Metro Police Department. The woman was also sexually assaulted.
The second robbery happened Thursday morning around eight near M and Rodman Streets.
In both instances, police said electronics were stolen from the victims.
The suspect is described as a black male in his 30s or 40s, who is taller and possibly homeless.
UofL police said they were contacted by the student in Wednesday’s robbery. The UofL Communications Office said since UofL police were not contacted until an hour after the police report was filed, an alert was not sent out since the “eminence” of the threat had died down.
Anyone with information about these robberies is asked to call the Louisville Metro Police Department at 502-574-7111 or 502-574-5673.
