UT employee attacked in parking lot by masked man, police say


AUSTIN (KXAN) — A University of Texas at Austin employee was assaulted while walking to his car early Tuesday morning, according to a release from university police.

At 2:15 a.m., police say the employee was leaving the Facilities Complex Building at 1301 East Dean Keeton Street when he was attacked. The attacker had their face covered and punched the employee in the head, face and back.

“He was wearing long-sleeves with a hood over his face,” police wrote. “The vehicle he got into is described as a white sedan, possibly a Nissan or Infinity.”
