A female student was sexually battered Thursday evening on the walkway between Barker Hall and Koshland Hall on the UC Berkeley campus.
The victim, a 21-year-old female, was allegedly battered by a suspect around 7:30 p.m. who reached around her with both of his hands and inappropriately grabbed the victim over her clothing, according to a UCPD crime alert released Friday.
The victim screamed, and the suspect allegedly ran northbound on the walkway and then westbound on Hearst Avenue. The victim was not injured during the encounter, according to the crime alert.
UCPD checked the area but was not able to locate the suspect.
According to the alert, the suspect is described as a Hispanic male, aged in the late 20s to early 30s, approximately 5’5” tall, with heavy build and dark shoulder-length wavy hair and wearing a turquoise-colored short-sleeved T-shirt and dark pants.
