The Northwest University Police Department is investigating an alleged sexual assault that occurred in an on-campus residence hall.

The assault occurred between 1:30 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. Saturday in Tower Suites.

In a campus-wide email, it was reported that the assault happened in the victim's room with a male who was known to the victim.

The suspect was not caught after the incident and is reported as being a white male with a slim build under six feet tall with blond hair.
