UCLA has had its hands full over the last week with separate allegations of creepy crimes.

Over the weekend UCLA police said they were searching for a grab-and-go artist who touched a woman sexually at dance party.

And then there's news of a peeping Tom near campus, too:

The alleged grabbing happened Jan. 24 at 10:30 p.m. during a "dance party" at 645 Landfair Avenue, UCLA police said in a statement:

While she was dancing with the suspect, the suspect hugged and grabbed her and sexually battered her.
The woman left the party, police said. The description of the white suspect was vague. Cops say he was about 5 feet, 7 inches and unshaven.

The peeping incident was reported the next day, about 10 p.m., at 10953 Roebling Avenue in Westwood, according to UCLA cops.

It happened again a few hours later, at 2:30 a.m., police said. And a victim said the same suspect was seen Thursday at 11:40 p.m. looking into windows of the same apartment building.

This guy was described as a thin African American, 5 feet 10 inches to 6 feet tall, wearing a blue hoodie.

Help with either of these cases is being sought by UCLA detectives, (310) 825-9371.
