Attempted sexual assault on UND campus
GRAND FORKS -- Officers are searching for two black men involved in a reported attempted sexual assault on the University of North Dakota campus.
Campus police responded at 3:50 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 6, to Noren Hall, where a woman woke to a man attempting to remove her clothes, according to a news release. The suspect, who is described as a light-skinned black male with a scar or birthmark over his left eye, left after the brief interaction, the release said.
A video posted to the UND Police Department’s Twitter account shows two men wearing hoodies exiting a parked car near the hall before the alleged assault. One suspect entered the hall while the other suspect remained outside near the car.
Police also have video of the suspects leaving the hall after the incident, UND Police Lt. Danny Weigel said. Only one victim was involved.
The suspect who allegedly entered the room is described as being 5 feet 8 inches tall with a medium build. He was wearing a blue sweatshirt and black sweatpants.
The other suspect is described as a dark-skinned black man who was 5 feet 10 inches tall. He was wearing all black clothing and was driving a gray car, possibly a Ford Taurus made between the years 2000 and 2007, with possibly North Dakota plates containing the numbers 913G.
It is unknown if they are UND students.
