COLCHESTER, Vt. -

Police are investigating a sexual assault on the St. Michael's College campus and they say a person of interest was caught on camera.

Investigators with the Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations say security video captured a man in a building. They hope someone will recognize him.

Investigators say the sex assault happened around midnight Saturday. The man is described as tall and muscular, with blonde hair and no facial hair. They believe he's about 25. And because they don't know who he is, they hope students will take precautions.

"We would remind people to take safety precautions they normally would-- not walking places alone, making sure you have your cellphone handy or to contact police or campus public safety if anything looks suspicious," said Det. Morgan Lawton of the Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations.

The incident was reported to police Monday. Investigators say they are just putting out the person of interest photo now because they were working other avenues of investigation before.

Anyone with information is asked to call Colchester Police at 802-264-5555 or the Chittenden Unit for Special Investigations at 802-859-3084.
