TEMPE, Ariz. — An arrest has been made after two ASU students were touched inappropriately by a man at two different parking lots, police say.
40-year-old Ronald Lowry was arrested and faces multiple charges, three counts of assault, two for shoplifting and one for criminal trespass on a separate incident, according to police.
Shortly after 10 a.m. on Aug. 16, Arizona State University Police said they received a report of a man who touched a student’s buttocks under her skirt.
The female student was in parking structure 4 on Rural Road near Apache Boulevard in the Tempe Campus.
Less than a half-hour later, another report was made by another female student saying a man wrapped his arms around her waist and touched her buttocks, police said.
This student was in the area of parking structure 2, on Rural Road near University Drive, not far from where the previous incident had happened.
ASU police were not initially able to find the suspect, but they believed it was the same person involved in both incidents due to the descriptions both victims gave.
On Tuesday, police said the suspect has been identified and charged, Lowry was arrested on Oct. 14.
