An alert on Northwestern University’s Web site stated that a female student was reportedly sexually abused Monday at around 9 p.m. in a hallway on the second floor of Tech.
According to the report, a male subject began to speak with the woman, and when she walked away the man grabbed her by the arm and below the waist. The woman then screamed and the man ran away. She was not hurt and refused medical attention.
The suspect was described as a 25-year-old, clean-shaven black male with shoulder-length braids, standing at about 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin to medium build. He reportedly was wearing an oversized white T-shirt.
University Police was then contacted and officers searched the building and its surroundings without success.
