Police are seeking the public’s help in solving a rape that occurred last month on the University of Hawaii-Hilo campus.

South Hilo patrol officers determined that the incident occurred about 7 p.m. on September 6, 2003, when an adult female was walking towards Ash Housing between the baseball field and tennis courts on campus. The victim said two males approached her, and one of them told her to shut up or he was going to kill her. The victim said one of the attackers then held her down and covered her mouth while the other raped her. The attack lasted for about 10 minutes before the attackers fled. The victim received minor injuries, but required no medical attention.

The alleged rapist was described as a local male about 5-foot-6 in height with a muscular build. The other suspect was described as a local male about 5-foot-8 in height and having a thinner build. Both were described as wearing dark clothing and dark knit caps.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the police non-emergency number at 935-3311.
