A reported aggravated assault and strong-arm robbery occurred Sept. 30 in a university residence hall, according to a UW-Madison Police Department incident report.
A UW-Madison student reported the incident to UWPD Monday. She told police a man entered her room in Elizabeth Waters Residence Hall around 12:45 p.m. and knocked her unconscious.
She added that she recalled someone digging through her backpack while she was lying on the ground and reported cash and other personal property missing.
UWPD is currently investigating the case, searching for a suspect that the survivor described as a 6-feet tall white male with a stocky build, last seen wearing a black hooded sweatshirt with the hood up and black gloves, according to the report.
The department sent an email to all students warning them of the attack in compliance with the Clery Act, a federal law that requires the university to inform students of crimes on or near campus.Subscribe to The Daily Cardinal Newsletter
