UCLA Sex Assault Suspect Surrenders (PHOTOS)
Only a few weeks into the school year and UCLA is searching for a sexual predator who attempted to attack on campus this weekend, cops said.
The suspect tried to grab a female student at Rieber Hall, a residential building on campus, but was thwarted when two witnesses saw the crime and he fled, grabbing the buttocks of a second victim at an adjacent housing complex on his way out, according to a UCLA police statement:
It happened about 2:30 a.m. Friday at 310 De Neve Drive, police said.

The suspect is described as a "light skinned" man in his early 20s, about 5 feet, 10 inches to 6 feet, 1 inch tall, 190 pounds or so, wearing blue jeans and a blue tank top.
If you know who it might be, UCLA police would like to hear from you: 310-794-5824.
The Westwood school saw three reported sex attacks in the 2011-12 school year and two in the 2012-2013 year.
[Update at 6:33 p.m.]: A suspect surrendered to authorities today, UCLA police told us. He was identified as 20-year-old Daniel F. Hoyos Isaza of Santa Clarita. He had yet to be booked but was apparently being processed.
