Observer Staff Report | Tuesday, February 2, 2010

Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) released a sketch of a suspect reportedly involved in a Jan. 23 sexual assault.

The composite image has about a 75 percent likeness, according to NDSP. However it is likely he has tighter curls than are shown.

The assault, currently under investigation, occurred about 2 a.m. on the northwest side of campus. The victim was approached from behind and then assaulted.

The female victim told police the suspect engaged her in conversation before the assault occurred.

Police ask anyone with information to call NDSP at 631-5555 or Crime Stoppers at  (574) 288-STOP.

The suspect is a college-aged white male with dark curly hair and blue eyes. He has a muscular build and is about 6 feet tall. The man may have a scratch on his face or neck.
The victim could have also broken one of the suspect’s fingers in the struggle.
