    ORLANDO, Fla. - University of Central Florida police said they're investigating a sex crime on campus.

    Two women reported that a man in a gray or silver Hyundai followed them onto campus and committed a sex act in front of them, according to UCF police.

    Police said the man followed the women from a McDonald’s on Alafaya Trail to Garage E on campus at about 3:30 a.m. Tuesday.

    Police did not elaborate on what the man did.

    The man fled campus as the women called authorities, according to UCF police. Officers responded within minutes, but they were unable to locate the man, police said.

    The women described the man as being thin, white, in his mid-20s and about 5 foot 7 inches tall with shaggy hair. The man was wearing a black hat, a black shirt and khaki shorts, police said.

    UCF police released surveillance video of the vehicle believed to be involved.

    Another woman reported that she was groped from behind on campus early Sunday morning near the Mathematical Sciences Building. She told police she struck the assailant and then ran away, using an emergency call box for help.

    The woman, who is not a UCF student and who lives out of state, is not cooperating with police, investigators said. Police said there is a lack of independent information that corroborates her report, so detectives will soon close the case.

    Authorities said they do not believe the incidents are related.
