Kansas University police are searching for a man accused of sexually battering a female KU student about 2:00 a.m. Saturday.
The student told police she asked the suspect, whose name she did not know, for a ride home from a party near 31st and Louisiana. Instead of driving her home, she said, he drove her to the parking lot behind JRP Hall on the KU campus, where the alleged battering took place. The suspect's car is described as a red four-door with cloth seats.
Those with information about the incident or the identity of the suspect are asked to call Crime Stoppers at 785-864-8888 or the KU Public Safety Office at 785-864-5900.
