csus_sketch.jpgThe Sacramento County District Attorney's office has decided not to charge an 18-year-old student from California State University, Sacramento, with sexual assault.

A complaint was never filed against Jonathan Lee, a spokeswoman for the district attorney's office said.

"The decision was based on the insufficiency of the evidence," a news release from the office stated.

Campus police arrested Lee early last week for allegedly raping a fellow student on campus. A university spokeswoman said the female student reported to police last Monday that she had been raped by an acquaintance that same evening in the American River Courtyard residence hall.

Meanwhile, campus police are investigating the kidnapping and sexual assault of another female student last week. The victim was assaulted in the Residence Hall parking lot about 8:30 p.m. Friday, police said.

The student had left her vehicle and was walking toward the residence halls when she was approached by three men in a van. One of them pulled her into the van. She was taken to the south side of the parking lot and sexually assaulted.

Police has released a composite sketch of one of the suspects.

The victim described the man who pulled her into the van as Latino, about 19 to 20 years old, 5 feet 10 inches tall, slender build, with a buzz haircut and brown eyes.

She described the van as a dark-colored minivan, possibly red, with a driver's side sliding door.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Sacramento State Police Department Dispatch Center at (916) 278-6851. Callers may remain anonymous.
