TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - A suspect has been identified in connection to the incidents of approaching and offering rides to female Indiana State University students.
Indiana State University Police identified Dominick Iacobazzi, 65 of Terre Haute, as the registered owner of a gold four door sedan and a red minivan involved in the incidents.
Just after 4 p.m. on Monday, university police stopped Iacobazzi in the 1200 block of Maple Avenue while driving the gold sedan.
University Police Chief William Mercier stated the victims in the incidents have positively identified Iacobazzi.
Records show Iacobazzi was convicted of child molesting in Daviess County in 1992.
He was charged with driving while suspended and was served with a trespass warning to stay away from all university property.
Mercier states there is no indication Iacobazzi was involved in two other recent incidents of an attempted abduction of a male student and the assault of another male student.
Those incidents remain under investigation.
