According to NBC, the incident sparked a public safety alert for the attack outside Henley Hall which took place just before 1 a.m.
The student who remains anonymous for her own safety was FaceTiming her boyfriend when she saw the tall, slender man making his way toward her.
Recalling the attack to the broadcaster she said: "This is when I noticed he’s was wearing a skeleton ski mask, and think, 'Well that's very scary looking.' The next thing I think is, 'Maybe it's a friend of mine trying to prank me.
"He punches me in the face and I hit …the concrete trash can behind me. He’s just like beating me up.
"I don't know if I hit him off or he heard people coming. Somehow he got off and I chased him back up the stairs, cursing him out."
She then realized the stranger wanted to beat her and sexually assault her.
But he soon realised he had picked on the wrong student as she has a second-degree blackbelt in karate and used those skills to fight back against him as her boyfriend continued listening on the phone.
