A man is wanted for urinating on groups of people in three separate incidents near the University of Florida campus in Gainesville.
The suspect, identified as a black man between 25 and 30 years old, urinated on victims while their backs were turned to him, according to a Gainesville Police Department report obtained on Wednesday by the Gainesville Sun. The suspect was further described as 6 feet tall with a medium to chunky build, a dark complexion and short curly hair. He was last seen wearing a grey or dark hoodie and baggie jeans, the Sun reported.
Victims told police they were standing with their backs to the suspect “when they suddenly felt themselves being urinated upon,” the report said. The suspect exposed himself and fled when the victims tried to confront him.
The urination incidents occurred at three separate times -- at about 3 a.m. on Feb. 26, at about noon on Feb. 26 and at about 3:30 a.m. on Saturday. The incidents occurred across the street from the University of Florida campus in Gainesville, according to the Sun.
The suspect had not been apprehended as of late Wednesday night. Gainesville police said they would step up patrols in the area in response to the urination incidents.
