Oklahoma State campus police are working to find the man one student says sexually assaulted her.

The girl said the assault happened on the OSU campus where students are now anxious for police to make an arrest.

Students received a text notification about a sexual assault on campus with a description of the suspect.

The text said police got a report of the assault happening between the Human Sciences building and the AgHall.

Officers have only a vague description of the attacker, who may be in his 20's.

The victim told police the man grabbed and fondled her before running away around eight o'clock last night.

This is move-in week for OSU students and recruitment week for sororities. 

News On 6 spoke with some students who said they hear about this kind of thing happening on the news but never imagined it happening where they live.

"I was super scared like I didn't know like what couldn't happen to me or the other women on campus. You never think it's going to happen to you or happen to where you live. How am I going to be able to get home from class or the library really late," said student Molly Louden. 

As campus police work to get more information, students said they're staying on high alert.

"I carry like my pepper spray like I hear other girls that carry tazers with them and you know it's kind of scary that we have to result to going to such things to just protect ourselves and just to walk home safely," Louden said. 

Anyone with any information is asked to call Oklahoma State police at 405-744-6523.
