WASHINGTON — District of Columbia police are searching for a man who sexually assaulted a woman inside a Howard University classroom.

Police believe the attack occurred Monday morning on the campus in northwest Washington. The university says the young woman was participating in a program on the Howard campus.

It comes just weeks after a student was fatally shot near campus during a robbery attempt. No arrests have been made yet in that case. Police said Tuesday night that the two cases do not appear to be related.

The department says it has increased patrols in the area.
