Police at Boston University are looking for a man after a student says she was sexually assaulted in her dorm room.

The female student told police that a man entered her dorm room in Student Village II, located at 33 Harry Agganis Way, early Sunday morning and sexually assaulted her.

Police say the student did not know her attacker.

A university-wide alert went out with details about the suspect's description:

The suspect, described as a college age white male, 5’ 8”– 5’ 10”, medium build, brown hair, wearing a dark colored button down long sleeve shirt and down vest, fled the area and his location is unknown.

Students say a student ID is required in order to enter a residence hall and guests must be signed in.

Boston University police are asking students to keep their doors locked at all times and report any suspicious activity.

A university spokesman says police do not believe there is a danger to the public.
