A female student was sexually assaulted on Friday at 6 p.m. in Copley Hall by an unknown suspect who is still at large, the Department of Public Safety said in a Public Safety Alert. From the PSA:
“The complainant had left her room and was walking downstairs toward the basement. As the complainant was heading downstairs, an unknown male followed her and said to her “Hey girl.”
The suspect then grabbed her from behind, pushed her against the wall, put one hand over her mouth and the other up her shirt. The complainant pushed the suspect and ran out the back door toward the Davis Performing Arts Center. The suspect left in an unknown direction.”
The victim did not recognize the suspect, who is described as a “a white male in his early twenties, 6′ tall, medium build wearing a black tee shirt.”
The Metropolitan Police Department is handling the case.
