SIOUX CITY (KTIV) – A Norfolk man has pleaded not guilty to charges in connection with a pair of attacks on women at Morningside College in 2017.

30-year-old Zachary Person faces six charges, including third-degree sexual abuse, assault with intent to commit sexual abuse, and serious assault.

He entered his written plea today in Woodbury County (IA) District Court.

Court records indicate Person is accused of sexually assaulting a student at Morningside College outside of the HPER Center on February 12, 2017.

On the same night, Person is accused of sexually assaulting a woman at the Comfort Inn & Suites in Sioux City.

Person is also accused of watching a Morningside student shower in her dorm, and using a cell phone to film her.

Person was sentenced to 15 to 20 years in prison for attempted first degree assault in Douglas County last year.  That incident occurred at an Omaha hotel in March 2017 and he was sentenced in October after pleading no contest to the charge.

He is listed on the Nebraska and Iowa sex offender lists.
