In an email sent out late Thursday night, Armstrong Atlantic State University warned all students and faculty members of a possible attack.
The warning, also posted on AASU's website, says a student reported that she was assaulted while she was walking in the residential housing community.
The warning, issued by the University Police Department, describes the suspect as a 5'6" black male, in his early 20's with a goatee and short hair. The University Police says it, "always recommends traveling in pairs and using extra caution when traveling after dark."
AASU Students were shocked to hear about the incident. Some students, like Cathrine Schmanski, said the university should have done more to get the word out.
"It's kind of scary, I guess. I should have checked my email. Maybe they could have gotten that news out a little better than just email that seems a little blause to say "oh we sent out an email, didn't you get that," said Schmanski.

In the event of an emergency, you are urged to contact the University Police Department at 912.344.3333. You are also asked to contact that number if you have any information about the incident.
