The University of Kentucky Police Department has issued a campus safety alert after a bizarre attack.
It happened Tuesday night on the second floor of the W.T. Young Library.
UK Police say a female student reported she was assaulted with an unknown object causing a minor injury to her foot.
Investigators are looking for a suspicious person who was seen in the area at the time of the attack. He is described as a heavy-set male, approximately 5'7" to 5'9" tall, wearing a black and white ball cap, black tennis shoes, and carrying a black and silver briefcase/laptop case. He was last seen walking toward the stairwell of the second floor Core 4 area of W.T. Young Library.
Two similar attacks were reported at the W.T. Young Library in April of 2011. In those cases, investigators say a man crawled under study tables in the basement of the library and punctured students feet with an unknown object. No arrests were ever made in those incidents.
