University of Alaska-Anchorage campus police said Tuesday they made contact with the man suspected of kissing three women against their will on the UAA main campus.

UAA Police Department Chief Rick Shell said police contacted a suspect with “obvious … mental capacity issues” on Tuesday about the unwanted advances.  

“Odds are pretty good he won’t be charged with any criminal complaint,” Shell said.

The first incident came Monday morning at the Eugene Short Hall on campus. The second and third came “a few minutes later” in Lucy Cuddy Hall, near UAA's dining facilities.

Shell described the suspect as a Hispanic male, standing about 5 feet, 10 inches tall and weighing 145 to 150 pounds. The suspect officers contacted Tuesday matched that description.

Shell said campus police were reviewing their options with regard to charges—at most Shell said the incidents would be class B misdemeanors or other minor infractions—but they would unlikely be able to make any case or arrest.

“We’ve issued him a trespass warning to keep him off campus,” Shell said.

According to Shell, the suspect did not have any family or guardians who could be alerted to his behavior.
