SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Prosecutors have charged a 22-year-old Brigham Young University student on suspicion of jogging up to women on campus and groping them as he ran past.

Provo City Prosecutor Steve Schreiner filed two misdemeanor counts of sexual battery Thursday against Nathan Eric Fletcher.

Police say he could face more charges as they continue to investigate 16 reports of assault since January.

Police cameras have captured at least one case of the groping, in which a jogger maintains his stride as he grabs a woman from the right side.

Court documents show Fletcher did not appear to have an attorney as of Friday afternoon.

Phone messages left at a number believed to be his were not immediately returned Friday.

Fletcher is scheduled to appear in court on May 1.
