An unidentified male gained entry into a residence and sexually assaulted a female on the 3300 block of Prospect Street NW on Sunday at approximately 6:30 a.m.

The Metropolitan Police Department issued a press release Oct. 20 describing the suspect as a 5-foot 7-inch Hispanic male in his 20s. The suspect was clean-shaven and last seen wearing a leather jacket.

The Georgetown University Police Department issued a public safety alert notifying the university community about the incident, urging students living off campus not to prop doors open and keep doors and windows locked.

“MPD is taken the lead in this investigation and GUPD is supporting their investigation,” Chief of Police Jay Gruber wrote in an email to The Hoya.

The incident occurred shortly after two other sexual assault incidents in the District early Sunday morning. Around 3:30 a.m., a man attempted to assault a woman on I Street NW near The George Washington University and the Foggy Bottom Metro stop. The Washington Post reported that MPD arrested 46-year-old Mustapha Kone as a suspect in the incident. Around 3:45 a.m., a woman was assaulted in a car near Dupont Circle. Police are looking for a silver-colored sedan and a man with dreadlocks last seen wearing khaki pants.

MPD urges anyone with information about any of the events to call the police at 202-727-9099 or text the tip line at 50411.
