MINNEAPOLIS - Minneapolis police are investigating a sexual assault that targeted a student early Sunday morning near the University of Minnesota campus.
Campus Police say that the woman was walking alone in the area of 15th Avenue and Brook Avenue Southeast between 2:40 and 3:10 a.m. after leaving a party when she was approached by three men.
One of the suspects struck the victim and sexually assaulted her while the other two acted as look outs during the crime.
The suspect involved in the attack is described as being between 30 and 38 years old, 5 feet 8 inches to 6 feet tall with a light build. He was wearing a dark jacket, dark shirt and jeans, and work boots.
The incident has more students paying more attention.
"It does kind of put you on edge," said Mark Labat. "You don't want to be walking around with your headphones in, unaware of your surroundings, especially at night."
"I'm not going to walk by myself anymore," said Audrey Higgins. "Definitely makes it so I don't want to walk by myself at night."
Minneapolis Police are investigating the attack. Anyone with information is asked to call the Tip Line at 612-692-8477 and reference case MP 13-357304.
