MINNEAPOLIS - A University of Minnesota student was sexually assaulted near campus early Sunday morning after accepting a ride from a man impersonating a police officer.

The student was walking near the intersection of 15th Avenue SE and 8th Street SE at approximately 2:15 a.m when she was approached by a man in a black sport utility vehicle (SUV).  He identified himself as a police officer and warned her about walking alone and offered her a ride.

After she was in the SUV he locked the doors and drove to a location west of I-35W and sexually assaulted her.

The suspect is described as a black male between the ages of 23 and 27 years old with a medium build. The man had short hair and a neatly trimmed chin-strap style beard.  He was wearing a dark colored jacket with a badge on it, dark pants, and a security or police style duty belt.

The black SUV had a dark colored interior with a computer screen in the center console.

Anyone with information is asked to call the Minneapolis Police tip line at 612-692-8477.
