Eastern Michigan University student reports sexual assault
A 19 year-old Eastern Michigan University student told police this morning she was sexually assaulted in a vehicle parked near the university’s student center on Oct. 12.
The student, who lives on campus, could not describe the vehicle, police said, but said she was assaulted by a black male, approximately 6'2" to 6'3" tall, with an athletic build and light to medium complexion, police said.
He was described as wearing a black jacket made of cotton material with elastic sleeve cuffs, and a black knit hat with a knit ball on top and material covering the ears, with strings that hang down with tassels on the end.
The assault occurred at 7:40 p.m., police said.
Eastern Michigan University interim Police Chief Robert Heighes said no weapon was used or implied during the assault. He said he could not release additional information about the assault, including why it was not reported for three months.
EMU police ask anyone who might have information about the case to call (734) 487-1222 to report what they know.
