Early Sunday morning, a burglary was reported in Moore-Hill Dormitory. The UT Police Department said the suspect has not been identified.

A student reported that she woke up to find a male on top of her while she was in bed, and that he fled when she resisted, said UTPD Sgt. Chris Bonnet, the lead investigator on the case.

“We’ve conducted interviews, but I wouldn’t call them suspects,” he said. “We are continuing to ask the community for information on the suspect.”

The suspect was described as an Asian male with short straight black hair wearing a white T-shirt and black shorts. Students should remain aware that the assailant is still around and possibly on campus, Bonnet said.

“It’s important to keep your door locked and to be aware of your surroundings,” he said. “If you feel like someone’s watching or following you then you should trust your instincts, and don’t hesitate to call UTPD.”
