A U student was approached just before 11 p.m. Tuesday night by a man wearing a ski mask as she got into her car near the Marriott Library.

After the student began honking her horn, the man fled west towards the Field House.

Sgt. Mike Richards with U Police described the suspect as a 5’10” white male, possibly with olive-colored skin, wearing a ski mask and possibly a bandana of some sort. Richards said that the suspect did not say anything to the victim, and appeared scared when she honked her horn.
