TEMPE, Ariz. -- Police at Arizona State University are investigating a reported sexual assault on the Tempe campus.

At approximately 8:20 p.m. Tuesday, a female student reported that she was assaulted by an unknown male at Adelphi Commons II, which is a student housing complex near Rural Road and Apache Boulevard.

"That scares me to death, actually," said student Lena Ladesma. "I live right here in the cluster for Adelphi, and the police like came to all of our rooms yesterday and asked us if we heard anything. I had no idea what was going on."

Ladesma said it is horrifying that the suspect is still on the loose.

The victim described the suspect as a light-skinned male, approximately 5 feet 10 inches inches tall, wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and black sneakers.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to contact the ASU Police Department at 480-965-3456.

Police recommend students use the Safety Escort Program or the buddy system while walking on campus. Call 480-965-1515 for a safety escort at the Tempe campus or 480-965-3456 for a safety escort at the Downtown, Polytechnic or West campuses.
