COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - A 21-year-old man is accused of raping one person and attempting to sexually assault another on the University of Missouri campus.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (bit.ly/1QXEjYn) reports the man was arrested at 4 p.m. Saturday and was being held at the Boone County Jail pending a bond hearing.

Campus police say the man is homeless and not a student at the university.

In the attempted sexual assault, a woman reported she was walking near the Mumford Hall classroom building shortly before 4 a.m. Saturday when she was approached from behind.

She said the man grabbed her and forced her to the ground, but she fought him off and called 911.

Police received a report at 11 a.m. of a rape that happened at 5:30 a.m. near the Student Recreation Complex.
