Published: Sep 12, 2012

LEXINGTON, Ky. (Sept. 12, 2012) — In the interest of safety, the University of Kentucky Police Department has issued the following Crime Bulletin to the UK community following the report of an assault.

 

At approximately 8 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012, an assault occurred on the second floor of the W.T. Young Library on UK's campus.  The victim, a female UK student, was reportedly assaulted with an unknown sharp object causing minor injury to her foot.

 

A suspicious individual was seen in the area and described as a heavy set male, approximately 5’7” to 5’9” tall, wearing a black and white ball cap, black tennis shoes, and carrying a black and silver briefcase/laptop case.  He was last seen walking toward the stairwell of the second floor Core 4 area of W.T.
