Campus police at California State University, Sacramento, are looking for a man they say sexually assaulted a female student last week.
The student was studying on the northeast side of Capistrano Hall at about 3:45 p.m. on Sept. 13 when the man, who was sitting across from her, moved next to her, Det. Scott Christian said.
The man then touched her "on an intimate part of her body," Christian said. The student was not injured. Christian said the student did the right thing by reporting the crime immediately.
Christian said police advise students to stay alert.
The suspect is described as a Latino man, about 26 to 27 years old, 5-feet-6 to 5-feet-7 tall and weighs 170 to 180 pounds. He has dark hair and a goatee, and dark colored tattoos on both of his lower legs.
He was wearing a black baseball cap with white lettering, a white T-shirt, Khaki cargo shorts, white ankle length socks and black tennis shoes. He was carrying a black backpack with red stitching.
