COLUMBIA — A female MU student reported being assaulted early Friday morning in the parking lot of the Campus Lodge Apartments on South Old 63, MU Police Department Capt. Brian Weimer said.

The woman was retrieving belongings from her car in the parking lot of the apartment complex at about 1:35 a.m. when she was reportedly assaulted by an unknown man, Weimer said. 

"He grabbed her, spun her around and tried to put his hands down the front of her pants. She kneed him in the groin and was able to get away," Weimer said.

The woman did not sustain any physical injuries. A friend of the woman's mother reported the incident at 10:32 a.m. Friday, he said.

The suspect is described as a male, approximately 5'2 to 5'4 feet tall, wearing a dark-colored hooded jacket, which covered his face, Weimer said.
