A woman has been dragged into bushes and indecently assaulted at the University of Canberra.
The woman was walking along the footpath on Kirinari Street towards College Street about 9.30pm Wednesday when a man coming from the opposite direction grabbed her.
The man dragged the woman into the nearby foliage where he assaulted her.
The woman struck the offender who then fled. A third person approaching the area might have also caused the man to flee.
The victim was shaken and upset but not injured.
ACT Policing is looking for anyone who witnessed the assault or might have seen the offender. Several cars were seen in Kirinari and College Streets around the time of the incident.
Police described the man as 180 centimetres tall with short hair and an Australian accent. He was wearing a black hooded jumper.
ACT Policing has urged anyone with information to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online via act.crimestoppers.com.au.
