An anonymous donor is offering a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of a suspect who attacked two women near Oregon State University.
The two incidents occurred 11 days apart within close proximity of each other. In both incidents, the nature of the attacks against two women involved a suspect with similar descriptions.
Investigators believe it is possible that both attacks were at the hands of the same male suspect.
In the first attack on Jan. 15, police said the suspect attacked a woman from behind and knocked her to the ground near Southwest 30th Street and Campus Way.
A suspect then attacked a woman while she was walking from her home to her driveway on Jan. 26.
Sketches were developed of the suspect in each case. The man was wearing a ski mask during the second attack.
The suspect is described as a white man in his 20s, standing 6' to 6'3" tall with an athletic muscular build. He had dark bushy brows. In the first incident, he was wearing a hooded sweatshirt with "OSU" printed across the chest.
In the second case, he was wearing a mask covering his face and a sweatshirt with a white circle printed on the back and cursive-style writing extending from the lower left side of the circle, across the center, to the upper right.
A tip line has been established to receive information from the community.
If you know anything about either case, call Corvallis police at 541-766-6924 or the Oregon State Police University Area Command at 541-737-3010, and select option 2.
The reward is up to $1,000.
