SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Police on two San Francisco Bay Area college campuses are investigating recent incidents of sexual groping.

San Jose State University officials say a man was arrested for inappropriately touching women after approaching them from behind on the campus Saturday afternoon.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (https://bayareane.ws/2p0FUHB ) that 32-year-old Cesar Pineda of San Jose was arrested. Four women and a 17-year-old girl reportedly were grabbed.

Officials say two women were assaulted within 20 minutes of each other on Friday night on the Stanford University campus in Palo Alto. Police say they too were groped from behind.

None of the women in either case were physically injured.



It was not immediately known if police believe the incidents are linked. Police on both campuses continue to investigate.
