University of Washington police are searching for a 24-year-old man who reportedly sexually assaulted a student in her residence hall.

Detectives began looking for the man, who they believe is not a student, after receiving a report Wednesday that he sexually assaulted the woman in her on-campus home last weekend, according to a news release from campus police.

The woman told authorities she first met the man through an online dating application, and after exchanging texts, the two agreed to meet, police said.

Authorities describe the man as white, 6 feet tall with a thin build and dark brown, “closely cropped” hair, according to the release.
