ATLANTA -

A task force has been assigned to investigate sexual assault cases on and around the Emory University campus. Authorities released a statement Wednesday saying they believe there may be a connection between several open cases:

"The DeKalb County Police Department and Emory University Police are conducting a joint investigation into sexual assault incidents in the vicinity of the Emory campus. The Departments have determined three open attempted sexual assault cases that occurred off campus in DeKalb County are possibly connected to a rape that occurred on Emory University's campus on Feb. 11th. The DeKalb County Police incidents occurred between December 2013 and January 2014.

According to DeKalb County detectives, the victims were young females, walking alone in the Emory vicinity off campus when the suspect approached and attempted to overpower them. The victims were able to fight off the suspect and alert police. The victims were not physically injured. The suspect is described as a white man, 5 feet, 10 inches tall, medium build and approximately 50 years old. This description is consistent with the composite sketch the rape victim was able to provide Emory Police."

School officials say the latest incident happened in a wooded area near Dowman Drive around 11:15 at night. The rapist ran off towards Emory Village following the attack.

The student was able to give assist the Georgia Bureau of Investigation in creating a sketch of the rapist.

He is described as being a male in his mid to late 50s, about 5 feet, 10 inches tall with a reddish or brown beard. He was wearing a brown knit cap, a tan or brown jacket, dark blue jeans and brown boots.

Anyone with further information or who recognizes the man in the sketch is asked to call Emory Police at 404-727-6111.
