In the Visual Arts building on Ocean Campus a City College student was sexually battered May 16 by a suspect who fled to escape apprehension.
The suspect was described in the crime alert released by the San Francisco Community College District Police Department as a Latino male, 25-35 year old, approximately 6 feet tall, weighing 200-230 lbs., with dark hair, a scar under his chin and a potbelly. According to Police Chief Kenneth Baccetti the suspect grabbed the female victim and sexually assaulted her before fleeing the scene. He was last seen in a tight T-shirt with a round symbol and dark jeans and clean-shaven, according to the crime alert.
“The incident is still under investigation and we are working with the police department’s sex crimes detail,” Baccetti said.
Baccetti stated since the incident happened late on a Friday, use of the new text message alert system didn’t seem necessary. However, he added, an alert was sent out via email to the City College community.
“I would like to ask everyone to remain aware of their environment and be mindful of suspicious activities at all times,” Chancellor Don Griffin wrote in a message preceding the crime alert
