SAN JOSE -- Campus police are warning students at San Jose State to take precautions after two women were grabbed inappropriately by one man and a third fended off an attempt by two others to do the same, police said.

All three of the attacks occurred within a six-hour period, Sgt. John Laws said.

The first woman was attacked at 6:55 p.m. in front of the Event & Recreation center, located at 290 South 7th Street, while the second was victimized on 8th Street outside the Hoover Hall dormitory around 9:21 p.m., Laws said.

In each case, a man came up to the women and grabbed them in "an inappropriate fashion," Laws said.

The suspect in those attacks was described by police as a white male, between 20 and 30 years old with a mustache. He was wearing a black hoodie, black pants and was riding a bicycle, Law said.

At 1 a.m., two men tried to touch a women who was just outside McQuarrie Hall, located near Paseo de San Carlos. The woman was able to fend off their attempts, but she still was a victim of a battery, Law said.

One of the suspects in that attack was described as a white male, approximately 6 foot, 2 inches tall and heavyset, with long blonde hair, and he was riding a long board, Law said. The other suspect also was a white male, heavyset, with an orange shirt and long dark hair. He was on a skateboard, Law said.
