University of Kentucky Police say a student was walking alone back to his dorm room Sunday night when he was approached by a man with a knife.

Authorities say it happened outside of the Student Center around 8:50 p.m. The suspect allegedly pulled out a knife and demanded the student's money and other personal items.

The student gave the suspect what he asked for, and the suspect was last seen fleeing towards Administration Drive. The student went back to his dorm room and called police.

Lexington Police assisted UK Police with a K-9 unit in searching for the suspect, but the suspect has not been apprehended.

The suspect is described as a white male, mid to late 30's, with dark shoulder-length hair and a full beard. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored jacket and jeans.

Police are urging students if they see the suspect, not to approach him, but to call police instead.
