By Brooke Hafs. CREATED Sep 3, 2013

Oshokosh--There's concern on campus after two attempted assaults are reported at UW-Oshokosh in the past two days.

The first happened around 4 a.m. Monday on Woodland Ave. The second occured around 1:45 a.m. Tuesday on Jackson Street. Both women were grabbed from behind on a late night walk home.

The first fought her way off, and the second scared off the man with a call to Oshkosh Police.

Oshkosh Police believe it was the same suspect who attacked both women. The victims' names are not being released, but they are both believed to be students at UWO.
