The University of Texas at Tyler Police Department was made aware of a possible sexual assault that had occured within the past two weeks at the University Pines Apartments, 3333 Varsity Drive. The report came in on Friday, October 19.

The University Police said at this time, both of the cases are under preliminary investigation and there has been no warrant issued for the suspect. However, information received thus far appears credible and the investigation is ongoing.
Jacksonville Police Department said on Monday, they arrested a man on a narcotics charge that matches the description of man UT Tyler police are looking for.

The Jacksonville Police Department said they are investigating to see if the man they have in custody is the same man UT Tyler campus police are looking for.
