Female Rutgers Student Assaulted in Scott Hall Bathroom

A female student was in the first floor women's room of Scott Hall when an unidentified man came in and grabbed her, police say.

A student was groped in the bathroom of an academic building at Rutgers University on Thursday, according to a crime alert from the Rutgers Police Department.

According to police, the incident occurred around 8:30 p.m. Thursday in the first floor women's restroom of Scott Hall, near classroom 112.

While the victim was in the restroom, a male suspect, described as a mustachioed black male, 5'11", in his mid twenties, wearing a black beanie cap, tan jacket and black pants came up behind her, grabbed her by the waist, and pulled her toward him, according to police.

He allegedly put his hands under her clothing and touched her buttock, the report said. The suspect released her and fled the scene after she called out for help.

Scott Hall is located at 43 College Ave., near the intersection of Hamilton Street.

The Rutgers Police Department has requested that anyone who was in the area during the time of the assault call Det. Sergeant Brian Emmett of the Rutgers Police Department's Detective Bureau at (732) 932-8025 or (732) 932-7211.

People were in the area that likely saw nothing and nobody. This occurred they were encloistered in their residence hall rooms, and fraternity houses, and weren't looking towards or at Scott Hall. Ford Hall is a residence hall near Scott Hall, and there are frathouses across the street. Also, 8:30 pm is nighttime at this time of year (it is 8:30 pm now, a few days after the incident, and so I verify with my own eyes.) While there is lighting to be had around the Scott Hall area, there are numerous shadows and dark areas outdoors at night, and so the suspect may well have slipped into obscurity.
