(Salt Lake City-AP) -- Police are looking for a suspect in the rape of a 20-year old mentally challenged man who works at the University of Utah.

The attack happened last week. Police say someone grabbed the victim while he was walking through the Merrill Engineering Building at the university and threatened to kill him if he didn't follow him into the restroom.

That's where the victim says he was sexually assaulted.

The victim told police he was attacked again the next day when he saw the same man again in the building.

The suspect is described as a white, heavy set man with dark hair. He may be a transient who has been seen sleeping in the building.

Police have questioned a man but they have made no arrests.
