COLUMBIA – A man was arrested in connection with a Saturday morning assault near University Avenue and Hitt Street, according to a news release from the Columbia Police Department.

Jeremy Lee Greber, 24, turned himself in to the Columbia Police Department, who notified the University Police Department, which took him into custody.

At the University Police Department, Greber was interviewed, arrested and transported to the Boone County Jail, according to the release. He was arrested on suspicion of felonious restraint and assault in the third degree with physical injury.

Greber is not a student at MU, and neither was the victim.

Police responded to the report of the assault at about 2:20 a.m. on Saturday, July 31, according to the release. Investigators were able to pull images from cameras in the area that matched the general description of the suspect.

The female victim was treated on the scene and released.

Because the investigation is ongoing, police cannot give more details as to the nature of the assault.
