RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — Virginia Commonwealth University police say two incidents of sexual violence have been reported on the school's Medical College of Virginia campus, including one in which an attacker pushed the victim against a restroom wall and attempted to unbutton the victim's pants.

Police said in a campus alert that the two instances of sexual battery were reported Monday afternoon.

Authorities say the first victim was able to push the suspect away after being attacked at a restroom inside the McGlothlin Medical Education Center.

Around the same time, police say an attacker hit a victim on the buttocks outside the Kontos Medical Sciences Building and fled.

The two buildings are next to each other and both victims described being attacked by a man, but it is unclear whether it was the same person.
