Kent State sent students an email early Tuesday morning alerting them of an alleged assault near campus.

A male suspect assaulted another subject at University Oaks Apartments between 6:30 and 7 p.m. Monday, according to the alert. The suspect claimed he was having trouble with his vehicle and asked the person involved for help.

Once the subject entered the vehicle, the suspect reportedly assaulted them.

The suspect was described as a 6 foot – 6 foot 2 inches tall black male with close-cut hair wearing gray or silver pants. He was also reportedly wearing a University of Akron sweatshirt and drove an older silver or light gold vehicle, perhaps a Honda Civic.
