CU Boulder police are looking for a man who groped a woman in broad daylight.

The female student called police last Thursday and said a man grabbed her buttocks, hugged her and tried to kiss her, without her consent, at approximately 3:45 p.m. outside the Economics Building, just south of the Norlin Quad.

"After the victim fought off the suspect, he continued to follow her as she walked away from the area," the University of Colorado Boulder Police Department said. "The victim noticed that the suspect appeared to follow another female before he ran away toward the University Memorial Center area."

Officers said they searched the area, but didn't find the man. They did find surveillance video of a man they want to speak with.

He's described as a white college-aged man, approximately 5 foot 5 inches to 5 foot 7 inches tall, medium build, with a full red facial beard. He was wearing a green beanie, reading glasses, gray sweatshirt and tan pants.

If you recognize him, call Detective Pacheco at 303-492-2039 or CU Police at 303-492-6666.
