University of Michigan Female Jewish Student Accosted, Police Searching for Suspect

The University of Michigan Police Department is investigating ethnic intimidation and assault against a student.

The incident happened around 2:20 p.m. on November 12, on North Campus near Baits Field.

StopAntisemitism – a grassroots Jewish advocacy group fighting Jew hatred – tweeted about the incident, stating “THIS is life for Jewish students at U.S. Colleges”.

Police say a U-M student was walking on the path between Baits Housing and the Stearns Building. A male approached her, traveling in the opposite direction, grabbed her arm, and made an anti-Semitic comment before releasing her.

Police say the victim described the suspect as a college-aged white male, about 5’10″, with brown hair, wearing a red and black shirt, blue jeans, gray shoes, and a U-M baseball hat.

If you have any information regarding this incident, contact the U-M Division of Public Safety and Security at (734) 763-1131.
