Woman assaulted by two men in alleyway behind Taste of India

A 24-year-old woman was assaulted around 9 p.m. Wednesday in an alleyway behind Taste of India. She was walking to the IU Chemistry Building from Walnut Street. 

When she cut through the alley, she told police she was confronted by two tall black males. One grabbed her by the throat with both hands, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Jason Shaevitz said. 

While he was grabbing her throat, the other man claimed that she was not the right person they were looking for and left the scene, Shaevitz said. The woman was left with redness on her neck from where she was grabbed.  

After the men left the alleyway, she left the scene and called her friend to pick her up at East Third Street. When they arrived at the friend’s house on South Fess Avenue, the woman called the police. 

The case is currently inactive.
