The University of Houston Police Department has issued an emergency security alert after a UH student reported she was taken off campus at gunpoint and sexually assaulted early Friday morning.

The student reported she was taking clothes from her dorm room to her vehicle in Parking Lot 1A at 12:05 a.m. Friday when she was approached by the suspect, who was holding a small silver hand gun, UHPD Sgt. Leslie Gremillion said.

The suspect allegedly told the student to get in her vehicle and made her drive to an off-campus location, where he reportedly sexually assaulted her, Gremillion said.

The suspect then allegedly drove the student back to campus, where he dropped her off and left in her vehicle.

Flyers with the suspect's profile have been posted at Cougar Place, near where the student reported she was abducted.

The suspect is described as a black male between 20 and 25 years old. He is 6 feet, 6 inches tall and between 150 and 170 pounds, with no facial hair and two gold teeth in front. He was reportedly wearing khaki shorts, a cream-colored T-shirt and a baby blue baseball cap.

UHPD has encouraged all faculty, staff and students to be on alert and to remain cautious of their surroundings, both on and off campus.

Any information concerning the incident should be directed to UHPD at (713) 743-0600.
