A female was sexually assaulted in a University of Wyoming stadium parking lot on Friday night, according to an email sent to students and staff on Sunday.

The victim -- whose age and relation, if any, to the university is unclear -- was walking across the East Stadium parking lot on Friday night when she was tackled by a suspect she did not know, the email states. The suspect sexually assaulted her.

There are few other details about the attack. Chad Baldwin, the spokesman for the university, said the victim, who has chosen to remain anonymous, has not filed a formal report with law enforcement, though evidence has been collected should she decide to.

The email did not include information about where the victim was going at the time she was attacked.

Baldwin could not provide a description of the suspect. University police became aware of it at around 2 a.m. Sunday morning.

Baldwin could not say whether the victim was a university student.

The parking lot is immediately east of War Memorial Stadium.
