Student assaulted early Wednesday morning

By Eric Trent

A Western student was assaulted at 1:15 a.m. Wednesday when a man ran up to her near the Ridgeway Kappa tennis courts and put his hand down her pants, according to a Western Alert sent at 2:44 a.m.

The man fled south on the service road next to the tennis courts toward West College Way, according to the alert.

The suspect was described as having a dark complexion, 6 feet tall with short hair and wearing a black hooded sweatshirt, black pants and white tennis shoes, according to the alert.

Police are still looking for the suspect, said Paul Cocke, director of communications and marketing.

Anyone with information is asked to call police at 911.
