Police search for suspect after report of sexual assault at Fairfield Univ.

Police are investigating an attack on a New England College campus.

A student reported a sexual assault at Fairfield University Monday night.

The university said the student was walking on campus when a man lured her into the woods and attacked her.

Officials are now urging students to walk in groups at night.

"We’re advising students to not walk alone, walk in pairs, walk in groups and be very aware of your surroundings at all times. It is a very safe campus, it’s a controlled campus, but things can go wrong," said Deputy Chief Chris Lyddy of the Fairfield police.

Police say they’re looking for a white man in his 40’s.
