A resident of Mayflower Residence Hall was assaulted Tuesday afternoon around 2 p.m. as he was leaving the northeast entrance of the building, according to a press release.

The suspect wore a ski mask and reportedly punched the victim in the back of the head and attempted to steal his wallet. A Good Samaritan stepped in and was able to aid the victim in retrieving the wallet, the release said.

According to UI police, the suspect is described as a 25- to 30-year old black male, 6 foot, 200 pounds; he was last seen wearing all black clothing and black Nike-style basketball shoes. The alleged victim also said there appeared to be a cut design in his hair on the right side of his head.

UI police are also seeking the Good Samaritan, who is described as an older white male, possibly 40 to 50 years of age, who might go by the name Mark or Clark. He is described as 5-10, 170 pounds, with a thin silver mustache and light brown hair.

Anyone with knowledge of the incident is encouraged to call UI police at 319-335-5022.
