Police receive report of sexual assault Sunday

A 21-year-old woman reported a sexual assault on North Walnut Street after a man allegedly put his hand up her dress and got on top of her at 3:20 a.m. Sunday morning.

The woman told police a male came up behind her while she was walking northbound on North Walnut Street. She said he put his hand up her dress and grabbed her.

When she told him to go away, the male allegedly pushed her down once and then again as she tried to get up. She told police he proceeded to get on top of her.

Seeing what happened, two of her male friends, both 21, ran to her and pulled the attacker off her. The suspect then pushed one male to the ground and got on top of him, after which the other male friend pulled the suspect back.

The woman and her two friends tried to run away from the suspect while he followed, but the suspect stopped following them and fled before police arrived.

Police reported that the suspect was a black or Asian male with short hair in his 30s to 40s. The case is still active.
