KENT, Ohio (WOIO) - Kent State University Police arrested Christopher Eugene Clark, 21, of Newton Falls, Ohio, for gross sexual imposition, assault and obstructing official business in connection with an incident that occurred Tuesday morning on the Kent campus.

Clark is not a Kent State student.

According to police a female student was walking on the fitness track near DeWeese Health Center at 10 a.m. Tuesday morning when she was approached by Clark, according to police.

Clark allegedly pulled the victim’s lower garments down before running toward Loop Road and East Summit Street, police said.

The female student fell during the encounter and suffered minor scrapes.

Investigators are also looking into a recent incident after a half-naked man was caught on camera outside of a Kent State sorority house peeping into the windows. The suspect was also sending inappropriate online messages to sorority members.

Anyone with information related to the incident is urged to contact Kent State University Police at 330-672-3070.
