KUTZTOWN, Pa. -

The search is on for a man who assaulted a student on the campus of Kutztown University.

The victim was outside Dixon Hall, by the Market Place, when a man he knew approached him around 2:45 a.m. Sunday, said police, who noted that the assailant pushed and hit the victim.

Police initially reported that the assailant also demanded the victim's wallet and cell phone, but officials later said that wasn't the case and that the victim found those items elsewhere.

An email about the incident to students Sunday gave the details and reminded students to call for an on-campus walking escort if they need one.

The campus is already on edge after three men forced their way into a dorm room at Deatrick Hall early Friday.
