A Nov. 22 trial date has been set for Eastern student Avery C. Roland, 25, of Stanton, who was charged with unlawful imprisonment in the first degree and sexual assault in the first degree after allegedly attacking a female University of Kentucky student behind the Hillary J. Boone Center on Rose Street, a street that runs through the University of Kentucky.
Travis Manley, UK police spokesman, said on Nov. 4, 2003, the female student was walking toward a row of sorority houses when Roland allegedly pulled the woman into a dark area and refused to let her go.
Manley said Roland then began to fondle the victim, but she was able to fight him off.During this time, Manley said four male students near the incident responded to the victim’s screams and intervened in the attack.
They chased the suspect who eventually attempted to jump into the backseat of a UK police cruiser sitting in traffic at the stoplight on Rose Street and Columbia Avenue.
Roland pleaded not guilty to the charges in 2003.
