EDMONDS — Police are investigating an attack on an Edmonds Community College exchange student as she was walking home from a bus stop on Thursday.

The attack was reported as an attempted robbery and sexual assault about 6:20 p.m. at 75th Avenue W. and 230th Street SW, Edmonds police Sgt. Mark Marsh said.
