SAN MARCOS, Texas (KXAN) — A student at Texas State University was attacked and called an anti-gay slur early Sunday morning while walking back to his dorm on campus.

Police officers called to the 300 block of North LBJ Dr. at 1:29 a.m. found the victim holding his nose and noted swelling and bruising on his face.

The student said an unknown man confronted him about the high heels he was wearing. The suspect called the student a f– and hit him in the face. A witness saw the incident and helped the victim, San Marcos police said Monday.

The suspect is described as a white male, 5 foot 6 inches tall, of thin build and with long straight blond hair and facial stubble. He was last seen wearing a gray tank top. The suspect ran from the scene before officers arrived.

Last Friday, university police were called to Bexar Hall following the report of an assault. Officers said a suspect has been identified and they are investigating. Another assault was reported to police on Nov. 7 on the grounds of Bobcat Village Apartments. Officers said a woman was pushed down from behind and kicked by a man who ran from the scene.

The university issued a warning in October after reports of three recent sexual assaults on campus. The incidents took place on Oct. 28 in San Gabriel Hall, Oct. 4 at Bobcat Village Apartments and on Sept. 8 in Bexar Hall.
