WAUKESHA — Waukesha police say a suspect has been taken into custody in connection with three sexual assaults that occurred near the Carroll University campus on Friday, September 18th.

On Tuesday evening, September 22nd, after releasing a photo of a suspect in this case, police say they received many calls and tips on Facebook indicating the identity of the sexual assault suspect.

The suspect was taken into custody and is currently at the Racine County Jail.

Police say the person in custody is a 17-year-old white male. He is not being identified at this time as this investigation is ongoing.

More information will be released once this subject is formally charged by the Waukesha County District Attorney’s Office.

Police say they do not believe there are any other suspects related to this crime.

Carroll University officials have released this statement to FOX6 News:

“Carroll University would like to thank the Waukesha Police Department and the Southeastern Wisconsin community for their swift response and action that led to the arrest of the suspect from Friday’s incidents. This was a great, collaborative effort and our Public Safety Department, as well as the Waukesha Police Department worked around the clock to apprehend the suspect.

We will continue to maintain the safety of our students by promoting our escort and transportation services that are available to all students, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our public safety officers will continue to patrol campus frequently, too.

At Carroll, we pride ourselves on educating our students on early reporting when incidents occur, and to not be afraid to step forward. We also encourage them to not be a bystander if they witness wrongful acts. This educational process at Carroll is important and essential to sustaining our safe campus environment.

Again, we would like to thank our Public Safety Department, Waukesha Police Department, the Carroll community, residents of Southeastern Wisconsin, and local media for placing our campus community back at ease.”

    yeah, happens often. However, I’m sure he was caught because people who recognized him ‘snitched’ on him -unlike other cultures. And there won’t be any stories about the people yelling at the police when they came to arrest him…..

      I wouldn’t be too sure bout that…. But by the belief of Mr opinion8d, you’d think the entire “other culture” is lumped into that category.. Hows about you give your opinion on criminals across the board, not just o other cultures…

    @ # TRUTH, seems like you gave your opinion about white people so, as the saying goes, don’t dish it out if you can’t take it.

    Just wait until this comment site taboola gets hacked and all you people making comments you wouldn’t make under your real identity get exposed along with your real names and emails.Let me tell you. You will regret it because every comment you’ve ever made is stored forever with your real identity. Ashley Madison Web site was a perfect example of this. I would think twice before making racial comments.

      That’s not exactly how it works, my comments here are no way connected to me personally. There are a lot of idiots on here but what you’re saying is just not true.
