    A woman was sexually assaulted near the University of Maryland, College Park after someone broke into her home through an open window, university police and the Prince George's County Police Department say. 

    The crime was reported about 3:10 a.m. Saturday, University of Maryland police said in a brief statement. 

    The attacker entered the woman's home on the 4500 block of Guilford Road through an open window, a county police department spokesman said. 

    The victim was "inappropriately touched" in her home, the spokesman said. 

    Then, he left. 

    No description of the attacker, nor the age of the victim, were available immediately. It was not immediately clear if the victim was a student. 

    Both students and other residents live on the block. The university notified students of the crime, and many of them said they are alarmed. 

    Call police if you have information that could help solve the crime.
