A 24-year-old woman was sexually assaulted Wednesday morning in her off-campus apartment in the 200 block of West Myrtle Street, a press release from the CSU Public Safety Team said.

The victim woke up at about 1:50 a.m. to find an unknown man in her bedroom inappropriately touching her. When she screamed the man ran out the front door, the press release said.

The suspect is described as a white male, about 25 years old, 6 feet and 2 inches tall who weighed about 185 pounds. He was wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and khaki shorts.

It is believed that the suspect entered through an unlocked window.

Anyone with knowledge is encouraged to contact Fort Collins Police at (970) 221-6540 or Crime Stoppers of Larimer County at (970) 221-6868 or www.stopcriminals.org.

The Public Safety Team urges that people take precautions during warmer weather, because perpetrators of theft and sexual assault take advantage of opened or unlocked doors and windows.

Correction: The article previously stated that the suspect was 6 feet and 12 inches tall rather than 6 feet and 2 inches tall. The Collegian regrets its error.
