UCLA police released surveillance pictures of a man on Saturday they believe may be the suspect.  A female student reported a man grabbed her from behind near Rieber Hall at about 2:30 a.m. Friday, UCPD spokeswoman Nancy Greenstein said.  The man was scared off after two people interrupted the alleged attack.  Investigators believe the man then accosted a second person at a nearby residence hall, according to a police report.

Anyone with information regarding this case was asked to call UCPD at (310) 825-1491.
