BOULDER, Colo. -- University of Colorado police are looking for a man who they said is responsible for a series of attempted fondling and harassment incidents that happened on or near campus in recent weeks.

The most recent incidents happened on Dec. 8. Around 3:50 p.m. a female student reported she was approached by a man and asked for directions to a building on campus. He followed the woman and approached by a man and asked for directions to a building on campus, police said.

About ten minutes later, a man approached a female student on campus and asked her for directions. He talked with the girl for a while and then followed her to a sorority house and back onto campus.

During that time, the man attempted to touch the woman's breast, but was unsuccessful, police said. He also allegedly tried to kiss the woman, but was unsuccessful.

The suspect is also believed to be involved in a similar incident on Nov. 19.
