Published: Updated:

FORT MYERS, Fla. — Florida Gulf Coast University police are searching for two male suspects following a sexual battery on campus, according to a press release.

The incident occurred around 9:30 p.m. Sunday in a North Lake Village parking lot. One suspect is accused of conducting sexual battery, while the other was considered a lookout, according to the release.

The victim could not provide a complete suspect description to investigators.

FGCU students were shocked to learn about the incident, which came in the midst of winter break with few people around campus.

Student Hannah Morris called the news disturbing. She was outside walking her dog around the time it took place.

“I don’t think I’ll walk her late at night now,” Morris said. “I don’t think that’s safe now.”

Anyone with more information should call Det. Anderson at 239-590-1956.
