Police on Thursday morning arrested a University of California, Davis, student for allegedly trying to rape a fellow student.
Officer Ken Garcia of the UC Davis campus police department said Pierce Hunter, 19, was arrested on suspicion of attempted rape and forcible oral copulation. The bail is set at $150,000. It was not clear if Hunter posted bail by Thursday evening, Garcia said.
Garcia said Hunter and the victim know each other and the alleged incident took place at a campus dormitory.
Andy Fell, a UC Davis spokesman, said the victim filed her complaint earlier this week and an arrest warrant was issued Thursday morning. Fell said Hunter's major was "undeclared."
Garcia said police believe other victims might be involved. Anyone with information is asked to call the police department at (530) 752-1230.
