Woman assaulted in University of Missouri parking lot

A woman was assaulted on the University of Missouri campus early Wednesday morning.

University Police said it happened around 1 a.m. in the parking lot at Tiger Avenue and Stadium Boulevard.

The woman told police a man grabbed her arms and pushed her into the side of the car, but she was able to escape and run away.

Police said the suspect is a white man between 18 and 24 years old, around 6 feet tall, with short brown hair.

This assault comes just days after two women were groped by a group of men on campus, and two other women were robbed at gunpoint by a man, both this weekend.

MUPD said they don’t believe the crimes are related because there are different suspect descriptions in each one.

This was another incident where no MU Alert was sent to students. MUPD said that is because they didn’t believe there was an active threat to students at the time.

They’re now looking for this man for the assault. They’re offering a reward up to $1,500 for information leading to his arrest. You can call Crimestoppers at 573-875-TIPS or submit a tip online at
