Djamel Benslimane was arrested in the April 18 groping incident of a University of Arizona student, police said.

Benslimane, 38, is facing sexual abuse charges, said Officer Rene Hernandez, a University of Arizona Police Department spokesman.

The woman was walking shortly before 9 a.m. in the 1500 block of East Speedway Boulevard, near North Cherry Avenue when a man groped her. The woman pushed away the assailant and called 911, said Hernandez.

A patrol officer saw a man matching a composite sketch based on the victim's description. Police investigated further and the victim identified the suspect, which led to Benslimane's arrest, Hernandez said.
