UPDATE: third woman says she was sexually assaulted by similar group of men on MU campus

Two women were groped by a group of men near the Memorial Union on the University of Missouri campus early Saturday morning, according to MU police.

It happened just before 12:30 a.m. Saturday.

The two women told police men approached them, grabbed them and tried to kiss them.

They said more men ran across the street and joined the other group. Police said the men groped the women before they saw a police car and ran from the scene.

There were six total suspects involved. MUPD is working with the victims and reviewing surveillance footage to get suspect descriptions out to the public.

After the original clery release on Saturday afternoon, a third woman anonymously told police that she and a group of her friends were assaulted by a group of similar men just about an hour earlier Friday night.

She told police the assault happened on Rollins Street between the Student Recreation Center and the Student Center.

Anyone with information is asked to call MU police or Crime Stoppers at 573-875-8477. You can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward for up to $1,500 if the information leads to an arrest.
