OSU Campus Police search for suspect in attempted sexual assault

STILLWATER, Okla.-- Oklahoma State University Campus Police are looking for a man they say attacked a female student early Friday morning.

Authorities are going through surveillance video of the campus as well as area businesses.

School officials say the suspect was wearing a ski mask and tried to sexually assault the victim.

It happened just after 2 a.m. when the student walked outside Bennett Hall and was approached.

She told police the masked man said he had a gun and made sexual comments. The victim said it looked like he had something in his hand, but she didn't think it was a gun.

When the suspect was distracted by a passing car, the victim kneed him in the groin and ran.

The attacker is described as a white male between 5’8” and 6 ft tall, thinly built, wearing a ski mask, black sweatshirt and blue jeans.

He was last seen running east from the southeast corner of Bennett Hall.
