(BLOOMINGTON) - Authorities are investigating an assault that was reported on the IU Bloomington campus Monday night.

According to IU, the assault occurred around 10:15 p.m. near the intersection of Jordan Ave. and 7th St. near the auditorium.

A female student reported that she was waiting at a bus stop when a male subject approached her from behind and grabbed her around the neck. The female then reportedly screamed and struck the male with her elbows, drawing attention of a passerby.

The suspect fled westbound on foot. He has been described as a white male, tall, thin, in his early 20s and wearing a dark blue hat.

The university originally told students in the area to "seek safe shelter" as a result on the incident, but later said the threat was no longer imminent.

The investigation is ongoing. Anyone with information regarding the incident is asked to call 911.
