Waukesha police say a 17-year-old Racine boy is the suspect they’ve been searching for in a series of sex assaults at Carroll University. The teen is in custody at the Racine County Jail.

According to a written release from Waukesha PD, three female students on Friday reported that a white male approached them from behind and grabbed them inappropriately. He was described as white, between the ages of 14 and 20, around 5’5″ tall with short blond hair.

The suspect was apprehended in Racine Wednesday, but he is not being named at this time. He is also the only person being considered as a suspect, the statement continues.

We will update this story as details become available.
