CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -

The UNC Department of Public safety has charged a man in connection with two assaults on UNC's campus.

Officers arrested Dontay Awtwanne Rone, 20, and charged him with two counts of sexual battery. The University alerted the campus community through Alert Carolina.

UNC sent out an alert to students, faculty and staff on Thursday after an incident was reported at 8:15 a.m. A female student reported being touched on her buttocks when walking into Carroll Hall after being followed.

Rone was charged in that incident, as well as a July 20 incident on Franklin Street where a female student also said she was touched on her buttocks after being followed.

Rone is not a student at the university.
