OXFORD, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

On September 17, police say a female student at Ole Miss apparently got into a taxi that wasn't a real taxi and was abducted and assaulted. 

According to WTVA in Tupelo, the student entered a taxi near Chucky Mullins Drive and Poole Drive on campus sometime around 12:30 a.m. Police say that nearly 3 hours later the student was released in the Rebel Drive and Northgate Drive area.

Some of her items were found just north of Jackson Avenue near Sorority Row.

Students on campus told WTVA that it’s not unusual for them to use modern-day online taxi services, which might help explain why the female student got into the car with a person she didn't know.

The University Police Department said that the attacker was driving a car described as a van or large S.U.V. The man is described as African American, bald, and in his mid-30s and mid-40s.

Those with information are urged to contact the University Police Department at  662-915-4911.
