A male Tech student was assaulted late Sunday night near Park Place Apartments by Jenkins.


The student was using a wooded shortcut connecting an adjacent parking lot to the apartments when he spotted the suspect, who immediately struck the student without provocation.


The student was able to run away and contacted Ruston police.


Police describe the suspect as a 6-foot tall slender male.


This information comes from a message via the Tech Alert system Monday.


The alert stated Ruston police would handle further investigation, while Tech police will patrol the area of the assault heavily in the near future.
