USF releases sketch of campus rapist

TAMPA — University of South Florida police have released a sketch of a man they say raped a student last week in a campus residence hall.

The victim said a man she didn't know raped her at 6:50 p.m. Sept. 19 in Kappa Hall.

Police have not said if they believe the rapist is a student and were still investigating this week how he got in the dorm.

The department said the man is white, 5-foot-10 to 5-foot-11, 180-190 pounds, with brown shaggy hair. According to the victim, the rapist also smelled of Axe body spray or deodorant.

This was the third rape on campus this year, according to the USF Police Department. There was one reported in 2011 and seven reported in 2010.

Police ask that anyone with information about the crime call them at (813) 974-2628.
