COLUMBUS (WCMH) — An Ohio State public safety notice has been issued by OSU Police following a report that a female student was sexually assaulted on campus.
The student told police that she was fondled by an unknown male.
She was sitting on a bench outside of Knowlton Hall, on Woodruff Avenue, when the man asked to sit beside her. Shortly after, he “fondled her lower body” and then fled east in the direction of Hitchcock Hall.
The man is described as a black male, with a light complexion and a goatee. He is reported to be around 40 years old, and was wearing black pants, a bright-orange shirt, blue or dark-colored athletic shoes and large-framed black sunglasses.
OSU Police is investigating the crime and asking that you call 614-292-2121 if you have any details.
