Grants Pass, Ore. -- Oregon State Police are searching for a man who allegedly assaulted a security guard at Rogue Community College in Grants Pass.

Troopers responded to shots near the soccer field on the campus Tuesday night. When troopers arrived they found a female security guard who was allegedly approached by an unknown male who struck her in the head.

Venice Hollinshead says she tried to pepper spray the man who grabbed at her gun in a holster.

During the struggle a round was discharged before the attacker fled. Hollinshead was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. Troopers searched the area but didn't find anyone of interest.
