By DWIGHT MARTIN
No arrest has been made in con
nection with the May 20 sexual
assault of a UNC student, but a
Chapel Hill Police Department
investigation is still in progress.
On that date, an assailant forcibly
entered a UNC School of Law
student's apartment, sexually
assaulted her and burglarized the
apartment, Lt. Authur Summey,
Chapel Hill Police, said. The assai

Police prepared a composite
sketch of the assailant using the
victim's description. The assailant is
a white male between 25 and 30 years

wearing a navy LaCoste shirt, blue
jeans, and running shoes.
The assailant was described as
