Authorities say the attack on a female Penn State graduate student by a knife-wielding suspect occurred on university property but two miles from the central campus.

Police are still searching for the assailant. They say the woman was attacked Wednesday afternoon while jogging on a trail between the Penn State Arboretum and Sunset Park. She was treated at a hospital for a cut on her neck.

The university says authorities revisited the scene with the woman and determined the portion of the trail was on Penn State property, which means university police will lead the investigation.

Authorities say the attacker may have a wound on his hand after being bitten by the woman.
