HIGH POINT – A Greensboro man was charged with attempting to sexually assault two students in a High Point University dormitory on Sunday morning.
At 6:15 a.m., officers from the High Point Police Department were called after a man entered campus and reached North Residence Hall under false pretenses, university officials at High Point said Enterprise. The university did not say what the pretext was.
Two students were able to leave the room where the man was, according to HPU officials.
Neither the police department nor the university have released details of what happened.
The man, Phillippe Joseph Warren Saieed, 39, fled the campus but was arrested around 2:45 p.m. Sunday in the 1200 block of Redding Drive, a residential area near W. Green Drive and W. Ward Avenue. He was charged with two counts of first degree robbery, two counts of break and enter, two counts of assaulting a woman and two counts of attempted first degree rape.

Saieed was charged in 2012 with attempted rape, assault on a woman and assault with a deadly weapon in Raleigh, where he was living at the time. A woman said he tried to attack her after hitting her bike with her SUV. He was convicted in 2013 of a criminal restraint charge, according to the North Carolina Department of Public Safety.
