UF student claims a man punched her in the head
Investigators are still searching for a suspect and possible motive
A student at the University of Florida claims she was attacked early Sunday morning, after arriving home from a Gainesville bar.
The woman told police she arrived home from Grog House Bar & Grill around 2:45 a.m. She says a man then knocked on her door, at the Continuum apartment complex located in downtown, and punched her in her head before running off.
Police say when they arrived she had a gash on her forehead and there was a pool of blood on the floor.
UF security then sent out an alert to students, faculty and staff, to inform them about the incident. The apartment complex is affiliated with UF’s Housing and Residence Education.
A Gainesville police department spokesman says since the man didn’t say anything to the victim at the time of the attack, police are ruling out sexual battery and robbery as a possible motive.
