MSU police investigating assault and battery incidents

The Michigan State University Police Department is investigating two separate assault and battery complaints from the Spartan Village area.

On April 9, at about 6:15 p.m., a female victim reported an unknown male walked by her and threw an unknown liquid on her. The woman said the man did not say anything to her. When the victim noticed the liquid on her face, she called police.

The suspect is described as a light-skinned black male with a light stubble beard, approximately 5 feet 5 inches to 5 feet 7 inches tall, wearing a black winter coat, blue or black pants, black winter hat and possibly leather boots.

During a second incident at 2:30 p.m. April 14, a female victim was walking through the grassy park area of Spartan Village when a man ran up to her, carrying a small plastic box. When he got close to her, he tried throwing some sort of substance at her. The woman was not sure if it was a liquid or a powdered substance.

The woman described the man as a light-skinned black male with a round face, about 5 feet 5 inches tall, with a medium build and wearing a red jacket.

Neither victim had any injuries and refused medical treatment on scene.

Attached with this release is a composite sketch of the suspect. MSU police are asking anyone who was in the area and may have seen anything to call Det./Sgt. Andrea Beasinger at 517-353-0732.
