Harvard Police Say NonStudent Raped on Campus

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Harvard University police say they are increasing patrols with uniformed and plainclothes officers around campus after a woman reported being raped in Harvard Yard.

The Boston Globe reports that police said in a statement the woman walked into Harvard Yard through the Johnson Gate at about 3 a.m. Friday and was grabbed and pulled behind Massachusetts Hall and attacked.

The police statement said the woman wasn’t a student or affiliated with Harvard.

Police said the woman described her attacker as a dark-haired, “very tanned” man in his mid-20s, with a medium build, and wearing a white shirt.
