University police issued a warning to all BYU students after a woman was assaulted south of campus.
The assault took place early morning on Nov. 8 at 600 E. 500 North. The suspect attempted to put his arm around the woman’s neck, who fought and was able to break free.
The suspect is described to be male, 6 feet tall, very skinny, dark-skinned — possibly Middle Eastern — with a heavy accent. He was wearing black running pants and a hooded sweatshirt during the attack.
A statement from the university police advised students to carry a cell phone with them, travel with a companion when possible and use extra care during hours of darkness.
