In a previous statement, UWPD said a suspect was “inappropriately touching or slapping people as they pass by on a scooter,” and that they needed help identifying him.

Police arrested a 17-year-old from Waunakee in connection to these assaults and booked him into jail on three counts of 4th degree sexual assault, though officials say additional charges are likely to be added from other jurisdictions.
