Kent State University Police are investigating an assault that occurred at 10:10 p.m. Thursday night near the Centennial A and B residence halls.

KSU spokeswoman Emily Vincent said the assault is not believed to be random and police are working to identify the participants and witnesses.

The university has an alert system to issue warnings when there is a concern for the safety of the community.

No alert was issued Thursday because police did not believe the assault posed any safety issue on campus, Vincent said.
