CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -

University of North Carolina campus police are looking for a man who followed a coed into a campus academic building Thursday morning and "forcefully slapped" her on the buttocks.

The UNC Department of Public Safety said the assault occurred around 8:15 a.m. at Carroll Hall, which is the home of the School of Journalism and Mass Communication.

The UNC student was walking from the intersection of Cameron Avenue and South Columbia Street when she noticed she was being followed.

The woman said she entered Carroll Hall and the man came up from behind and slapped her on the rear end. He then fled north.

The man is described as a thin black man in his early 20s with shoulder length dreadlocks, medium complexion, and wearing a black, red and white baseball cap with a royal blue "skull cap" underneath.  

He was also wearing long dark basketball shorts, and a dark, short-sleeved T-shirt. He was carrying a royal blue "two string" back pack. 

UNC Police are asking anyone with information about this incident to call (919) 843-6165 or contact the Chapel Hill-Carrboro-UNC Crime Stoppers at (919) 942-7515.
