A McDaniel College student was sexually assaulted on campus early Friday morning, school officials said.
According to a news release, the assault happened around 12:10 a.m. when the woman was walking up the outside steps connecting the old and new sections of Levine Hall.
The victim walked past a man who was sitting on a ledge near the steps who grabbed her hair, hit her and put his hand under her clothes. She fought back, was able to break free and ran off.
Westminster Police are looking for a white man, between 5'5 and 5'8 with an average build, who is about 30 years old or older with reddish-brown hair and a curly, reddish-brown beard. He was dressed in a dark hoodie sweatshirt and dark pants. He was not armed and ran off after the assault.
Anyone with information should call Westminster Police at 410-848-4646 or the Department of Campus Safety at 410-857-2202.
