University Police are investigating a report of attempted sexual assault by a self-identified Ohio State student, the university said in a public-safety notice issued Thursday evening.
According to the report, an unknown male approached a female student on Jan. 28 near the intersection of East 17th Avenue and North High Street and offered to escort her back to her on-campus residence safely. When they arrived at her room, he began to make unwanted sexual advances. The incident was reported to University Police Wednesday.
The suspect left the room when the female student’s roommate returned and police are still searching for the suspect, according to the report.
The suspect said he was an Ohio State student, 22-years-old and his name was either Tyree or Kyrie. The report says the suspect is between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11 with a stocky build, short black hair and some facial hair.
