In both attacks, the suspect is described as an African American male of thin build, about 5’7” in height, with short, black hair. Police could not confirm if they think it is the same man in both attacks. They also said they were not sure if he was even a student.
The Massasoit Community College Police Department and Brockton Police Department are actively investigating the assaults.
