CLEMSON, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Clemson University police hope someone will recognize a sketch of a man they said tried to rob a female student at gunpoint.

Campus police said the student was walking along Williamston Road outside Gate 1 of Memorial Stadium when an armed man got out of a two-door car and demanded she give him her bag.

Police said she ran away and the man got back into the car and drove off towards Perimeter Road.

The attempted robbery happened about 10:40 p.m. outside of Stadium Suites, police said. The university sent out text messages alerting students and staff of the crime.

The man was described as white, in his late 20s or early 30s, about 6' 2" tall, thin build, clean-shaven and was wearing a light-colored shirt and dark pants. The student told police the car was two-door, sporty and smaller than a Honda Civic.

Police ask that anyone with information about the robbery or who can identify the man to call them at 864-656-2222.
