COLUMBIA — A man grabbed a student's breast and buttocks at MU on Saturday evening, according to MU police, who are asking anyone with information about the incident to call the department at 882-7201.

MU police issued a Clery release to students, faculty and staff detailing the incident on Saturday evening. Here is the text of that release:

"On todays date, around 5:45 p.m., two female students were walking east on the sidewalk between The Residence on the Quad and Pickard Hall. They were stopped by a Middle Eastern male who asked one of the students if she would take a picture with him. She agreed and the second student took a picture with suspect’s camera. He didn’t like the first picture and wanted a second so the friend took another. In the process of the second picture the suspect grabbed her buttocks and she relocated his hand to her waist. He then grabbed her breast and fondled it. She pushed him away and left the area.

"The suspect is described as a Middle Eastern male, around 60 years old, dark brown skin, black hair with a little white in it, not balding, little to no facial hair, and a thick accent. He was wearing a white button down polo with light brown/tan plaid and khaki pants. The suspect had a digital camera in his possession.

"Anyone with information is asked to call the University Police Department at 573-882-7201."
