STEVENS POINT, Wis. (WAOW) -

A UW-Stevens Point student was sexually assaulted in a parking lot and fought off the attacker with her car keys before driving away, according to campus police.

The woman told investigators she was approached in Parking Lot A about 11:20 p.m. Thursday and the man - in his early 20s - "aggressively grabbed her arm and buttocks," police said in a statement Friday.

The suspect - described as a white male, approximately 6’2” tall, with short brown hair - may have a cut on his face from being struck by the car keys, police said.

University police responded to the attack by surrounding the area and searched for the suspect but didn't find him, the statement said.
