UCLA Sexual Violation Sparks Search for Suspect
UCLA has been stung by a string of sexual attacks in recent years, and this is the latest.
Campus police last night said they're on the lookout for a man who committed "brief touching" inside an academic and administrative building.
Here's the story:
About 6:50 p.m. on Dec. 1 the suspect asked the victim for directions as they two were on the A level of Murphy Hall, UCLA police said in a statement:
While standing near the A-level elevators, the suspect sexually battered the victim (brief touching). The suspect fled the area when the victim advised she was calling the police.
Cops say they're looking for a 20-year-old Latino who's 5 feet, 8 inches, 160 pounds. He was said to have been wearing a beige sweater with dark-brown stripes, Levis, and white tennis shoes. He had a black backpack, too, cops say.
