CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Police arrested a man for admitting to walking around campus at Xavier University grabbing girls buttocks. 

Court records show 23-year-old Wesley Walker “admitted to police he knew what he was doing we wrong.”

"Well I was freaked out a little bit because there have been a few instances like this on campus," said Kristen Bainbridge, a Xavier student.

Xavier officials told FOX19 NOW the incidents took place between December of 2015 and February. Their reports show there were five victims who reported the inappropriate touching.

"A few people have been talking about it mostly girls walking home at night," said Kerriane Smith, a Xavier student.

Xavier officials first alerted students by sending out alerts on Universities Safety Home page under Timely Warnings. It reads in part, “Xavier Police Department received reports of a male suspect approaching female students and touching them inappropriately as they enter or leave buildings on campus.”

"I have pepper spray so I have defense but I know that Xavier police is really awesome about getting these people. I feel really safe on campus," said Stephanie Ambrose, a Xavier student.

Police said that Walker would approach students from behind, grab their buttocks then run.

Walker is not a student at the University and did not know the victims. He was arrested by Xavier Police in the 1600 block of Musketeer Drive around 10 a.m.

"I'm really excited that he's caught cause it could happen to anyone on campus."

Walker's charged with sexual imposition and being held at the Hamilton County jail. No court date has been set.
