It happened near the corner of Hungerford and College Streets about

grabbed a woman walking by. She was able to get away and was physically 
unharmed.

has short brown hair and was wearing rain coat.

Call the Burlington Police Department if you have any information at

It is important to take precautions for your own safety at all times, 
and especially when walking at night.  Be aware of your surroundings; 
walk with at least one other person; report suspicious activities to 
police; call 911 if you witness criminal or threatening activity.

If you want to leave an anonymous tip, go to http://www.uvm.edu/police/ 
and use the tip411 form or text your tip to 847411 (tip411) and include 
the keyword /UVM /in your message.

"Crime Awareness" is an integral component of "crime prevention." 
Knowledge that crimes occur encourages communities to actively 
participate in crime prevention efforts (e.g., locking doors, walking 
with others at night and through dark areas, reporting suspicious 
activity to police) and, therefore, creates a safer environment. Lack of 
information invites complacency. The following messages were approved 
for campus-wide distribution by Chief Lianne M. Tuomey of the UVM 
Department of Police Services to alert you to an incident, to promote 
safety on campus and, in part, to comply with the Jeanne Clery 
Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 
1990.
