Police are searching for a sexual predator near the UGA campus in Athens.
The 19-year-old victim told the officers that she was attacked in an area south of Harris Street near Dering Street.
According to investigators, the young woman was on her way home when a “muscular and fat-skinned” man grabbed her from the back and covered her mouth.
She told the police that the man had pulled her into some nearby bush and tried to undress her, but she managed to fight them and escape.
Investigators hope that someone who lives nearby has surveillance video of the assault or suspect.
