BURLINGTON, Vt. (WCAX) - Police are investigating two suspicious incidents at the University of Vermont.

UVM Police say they received two reports of a man parked near campus on Tuesday, motioning over women who were walking nearby and asking them to look inside his vehicle.

Police can not confirm yet whether both incidents involved the same man. However, the person in each case was a man in his 30s driving a blue SUV with bumper stickers.

The first incident occurred on Colchester Avenue, and the second in the area of Buell and South Willard streets.

UVM Police Chief Tim Bilodeau says these were very strange incidents and they just want to know what the person’s intent was.

“It’s an odd situation, and I think the people in this have read that well. That’s a situation where you know these young women or people are feeling there is something wrong. We want to just verify what the intent of this person is,” Bilodeau said.

Anyone with information is asked to contact UVM Police at 802-656-3473.
