COLUMBIA — A woman who lives in Laws Residence Hall at MU was assaulted early Sunday morning after two men entered her room, MU police said.

MU Police Captain Brian Weimer said the victim was getting ready for bed around 1:30 a.m. when a man entered through her unlocked door. He assaulted her, and she noticed a second man had entered the room. She reached for her cellphone and said she was calling the police, and the men left.

Police received the woman's report Sunday evening.

The security cameras inside the residence hall will be part of the investigation, Weimer said.

The victim said the man who assaulted her was about 6 feet tall with an athletic build and said he had short, dark hair and a big nose.

She described the second man in the room as skinny and about 5 feet, 7 inches tall and had very short, dirty-blonde hair.

The investigation is ongoing.
