Officers with the University of Missouri Police Department were searching Sunday for a suspect in a reported case of fondling.

According to a department news release, at about 11:45 p.m. Saturday a female subject notified officers of an alleged encounter she had with a man earlier in the night during a concert on Carnahan Quadrangle.

The female said she was standing with friends near the stage around 10:15 p.m. when a man, described in his 50's, approached her from behind and rubbed against her in a sexual manner.

The alleged victim told authorities she did not speak to the man and immediately left the concert.

The department released a photo of the alleged suspect and asked the public to help identify the man.

Anyone with information should contact the department at (573) 882-7201, or call CrimeStoppers at (573) 875-TIPS (8477) to remain anonymous.
