WASHINGTON (AP) A Georgetown student says she was sexually assaulted in her dormitory.

The incident happened Friday night, according to the student. She told officials that she left her room in Copley Hall and was walking to the basement when a man she did not know started to follow her. The man allegedly grabbed her from behind, put one hand over her mouth and the other hand up her shirt before the student was able to push her attacker away and run out of the building.

The incident is being investigated. Georgetown's Department of Public Safety asks anyone with information about the incident to contact them at: 202-687-4343.
