    Police released a sketch on Tuesday of one of the suspects accused of sexually assaulting a Rowan University student near the campus last month.

    Police say the 23-year-old woman was assaulted by two men back on March 24. The student told Glassboro Police that she stopped her car at Mullica Hill Road (Route 322) and Hampton Boulevard -- about ½ a mile from the Glassboro campus -- around 9:30 p.m. to rearrange some things in her car.

    As the woman got out of the car, two masked men -- one believed to be in his 20s and the other in his 40s -- grabbed her then sexually assaulted her in front of her car, according to police.

    Both men were dressed in all black and had their faces covered by either a mask or scarf, according to investigators. 

    After the assault the woman went home and called police shortly before midnight.

    On March 25, the university sent out a public safety alert to its students:

    On Tuesday police released a composite sketch of the suspect who was believed to be in his 20's. He is described as a medium-built man standing between 5-foot-7 and 5-foot-10 with a scar or piercing on his left eyebrow. Investigators also say he may smoke cigarettes or marijuana based on the odor of his clothes.

    If you have any information on the whereabouts of either suspect, please call Investigator Julie Howery at 856-881-1501 ext. 88167.
