A student at Nyack College told police she was attacked Tuesday night on campus.

Police say the 18-year-old student was found shortly before 9 p.m. in a wooded area near a parking lot by the dormitories calling for help. Police are not releasing details since the investigation is ongoing and evidence is still being collected.

School officials warned students Wednesday morning to be careful while walking around campus. Many students said they were frightened by the news and would not walk alone at night on campus.
