COLUMBIA — The Columbia Police Department is investigating a report of a sexual assault on Saturday at the 900 block of Curtis Avenue.

The 900 block of Curtis Avenue is located in MU's Greektown. According to a Clery release Saturday afternoon, MU police aided a victim and notified Columbia police of the location of the incident.

Columbia police spokesman Sgt. Joe Bernhard said in an email that the victim did not sustain any serious physical injury.

Police are looking for the driver and any occupants of a white, older model pickup truck that was seen in the area, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.

Surveillance cameras show the truck in the area at the time of the incident, and Columbia police are looking for the driver and any occupants of the truck to find out if they are involved in any way, Bernhard said. Bernhard did not indicate that the driver or any occupants of the vehicle are currently suspects.

Columbia police ask that anybody with knowledge of the driver or any passengers call the Police Department at 442-6131 or CrimeStoppers at 875-8477.
