A Northwestern student was physically battered and verbally threatened Thursday evening in Allison Hall, police said.

The student reported at about 4:30 p.m. that an unknown male entered her room where a verbal altercation took place before the male fled, according to an email from University Police Chief Bruce Lewis. The email said the student then followed the intruder and a physical altercation took place in which the suspect said, “I’ll shoot you.”

Lewis said the student reported no physical injuries and no weapon displayed.

Evanston police and UP responded to the report and are actively searching for the suspect, Evanston police Cmdr. Joseph Dugan told The Daily. Six EPD vehicles were dispatched to Allison Hall.

The student described the suspect as a black male about 6 feet tall and 210 pounds, police said. The student said the suspect was bald with no facial hair, wearing a green sweatshirt and blue jeans and carrying a gray backpack, police said.
