Just after 7 p.m. on Tuesday, November 19, Missoula police were called to the Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority house on Gerald Avenue after a young woman was assaulted outside the residence.

Corporal Mike Hebert said the woman, 18, reported being accosted while she was walking from the University to the sorority house.

“The unknown assailant grabbed the female and knocked her to the ground in the area of Gerald and Daly,” Hebert said. “The male appeared to be interrupted by the sound of other people in the area.”

Hebert said the woman provided a good description of her attacker.

“He is described as a white male in his early to mid-20’s, approximately 5 feet 6 inches tall with a skinny build and blond shaggy hair to his ears and wearing metal frame glasses that may have been broken in the attack,” Hebert said. “He was wearing blue jeans with a gray zip-up sweatshirt  and a light colored shirt underneath. He was last seen running in a northwest direction through yards towards Higgins Avenue.”

Hebert said the victim was not seriously injured in the attack.

“The female received minor injuries, but refused medical treatment,” Hebert said. “Police provided extra patrols during the night, but there have been no new developments in the case.”

Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call the Missoula Police Department at 552-6300 or Missoula Crimestoppers at 721-44-44.
