THURSDAY, OCT. 6, 2011, 2:35 P.M.

A Spokane Community College student reported to campus security today that she was raped in a car in a campus parking lot at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Spokane police are investigating. The woman did not know the man, authorities said, and the suspect remains at large.

“As soon as she told us about it, we started working on an alert to let every one know to be aware,” said Anne Tucker, a college spokeswoman. “That’s the most important thing, so people can be on the look out.”

The rape occurred in the large parking lot between the clock tower and fire science tower (P-17) in a vehicle described as an early 2000s or late 1990s silver four-door Acura.

The rapist is reported to be a white male in his early 20s with blond hair and a skinny build. He is approximately 5 feet 10 inches tall.

Anyone with information about the rape is asked to call Crime Check, (509) 456-2233.
