SALT LAKE CITY — Police at Brigham Young University are searching for at least one man who they say has been jogging up to women on campus and groping them as he runs past.

The groper has struck twice this week.

BYU Police Lt. Arnold Lemmon tells the Deseret News (http://bit.ly/1j8bbi6) the latest instance happened Wednesday morning but nearly a dozen women since January have recounted to police similar scenarios.

Lemmon says police video cameras have captured at least one case of the groping, in which the jogger maintains his stride as he grabs a woman from the right side.

Lemmon says the reports indicate at least one suspect is in his early 20s.

Police are cautioning women to take note of their surroundings and avoid talking on the phone or wearing headphones.
