(KUTV) — An unidentified man has repeatedly sexually assaulted women in the same area of Pleasant Grove over the past week.

Police warned residents in the city and, specifically, in the area of Garden Drive, to be on the lookout.

Four incidents were reported to police since the beginning of November involving sexual assaults of women. The most recent was reported on Thursday.

One woman was groped, another's pants were pulled down. The person exposed himself to women in other reports, the department said in a Facebook post.

Police don't have a solid description of the subject, but believe he was wearing a gray or red and gray hoodie or jacket during several of the incidents.

The investigation into the incidents was ongoing, police said, warning women to travel in groups whenever possible and not to let electronic devices distract them when walking to and from their vehicles.

Those in the area were also advised to lock their cars and homes and to, "Please be aware of your surroundings."

Anyone with information or who wished to report suspicious acitivity was asked to contact Pleasant Grove dispatch at 801-785-3506.
