This isn’t the first person wanted for sexual violence in recent weeks. Last month, GPD said they were looking for a different man accused of raping a woman in the Midtown area in August. Multiple occurrences of sexual battery were reported to University police earlier this year, including a man wanted for raping a woman prior to the homecoming game Oct. 5.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of this man can call 352-393-7670 or 352-372-STOP.
