A senior was assaulted on Brook Street near Fones Alley Monday at 8:30 p.m, according to a Providence Police report.

The victim, who wished to remain anonymous, was carrying a large cello home from Orwig Music Library. He told The Herald he did not see his attacker or have warning of the assault.

Jara Crear '12, who was walking on Fones Alley toward Brook Street, said the attacker was walking so close to the victim she thought they were together, until she heard a loud "slapping sound," and looked up to see the victim on the ground.

According to the report, Crear saw a "thin white male" fleeing the area and jumping into a large white vehicle, possibly a Ford Crown Victoria parked at 204 Angell St.

Nothing was taken from the victim, who said he received only minor abrasions on his face and hands.
