University of Kansas student reports being raped

LAWRENCE | A University of Kansas student says she was knocked unconscious and raped by a man inside her dormitory room.

Campus police say the student reported that she was attacked and knocked unconscious after she entered her room Sunday night at Oliver Hall. She says when she woke up she realized she had been sexually assaulted.

University police spokesman Capt. Schuyler Bailey says police do not believe the assault is connected to a string of rapes in Lawrence and Manhattan in the last several years.

The suspect is described as a white man with brown hair, 6-feet tall and weighing 170 pounds.
