The attack occurred last Monday in the Howard University School of Business on the 2600 block of 6th Street in Northwest D.C. in the morning hours between 9:30 a.m. and 10:15 a.m.

According to The Washington Post, the victim said she was on the bus when a man she thought she knew from junior high school winked at her. Once she got off the bus and began walking on Sixth Street, the man followed and attacked her.

The victim was grabbed from behind, forced to the floor of a classroom, and s*xually assaulted.

“The complainant reported that the suspect followed her into the school and pushed her into a classroom,” according to the police report.

A Howard University spokesperson previously said that the person was on campus for a program that was not sponsored by the university.

Police have not found the young woman’s attacker. He is described as a black male approximately 18-20 years old and six feet tall, wearing a white shirt and possibly swim trunks.

Anyone with information about the assault is asked to call the police at (202) 727-9099. Police are offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information which leads to the arrest of the attacker.

This assault comes just weeks after Howard University student Omar Sykes, 22, was shot and k!lled during an apparent robbery not far from campus.

    It’s too bad students can’t go to class without fear of being accosted!! Students are being assaulted, robbed and beaten by thugs wanting to rob them. It is happening here in Atlanta at both Black and predominately white colleges. I pray that law enforcement officers can help prevent these acts from happening!!

    This is another example of Black on Black crime. This animal must be caught. I wonder how much investigating is actually taking place. This scum is more thank likely somewhere in the area ready to attack another womanand the cops are not doing their job.
