SALT LAKE CITY -- Salt Lake City police are warning women to be careful while walking near the University of Utah following attacks on three women near campus.

Police tell the Salt Lake Tribune two women were walking in the Heritage student housing area at 9:30 p.m. Nov. 5 when a man yelled sexual suggestions at them and touched them inappropriately.

He is described as middle-aged, 5-feet-9-inches to 6 feet tall weighing 200 to 210 pounds.

Two days later, a different man grabbed another woman walking in the same area around 7:30 a.m. She got away from him and he left. He is described as in his early 20s with a husky build, about 5-feet-7-inches tall.

Police recommend people be aware of their surroundings and don't walk alone if possible.
