An individual was sexually assaulted on campus early Thursday morning, according to a UCPD alert released the same day.

The alert did not specify the victim’s affiliation with the campus.

Late on Wednesday night, the victim met the two suspects, the first of which she knew from a previous encounter, on a city street west of Oxford Street. About midnight Thursday morning, after the suspects offered to walk the victim home, they allegedly sexually assaulted the victim just after entering the campus near Frank Schlessinger Way.

The victim found the police and reported the incident after the suspects left.

According to the UCPD crime alert, the suspects are described as:

Suspect No. 1 — A Hispanic or white male, 5-foot-9 in height, 23 to 29 years of age with a medium build, dark eyes and collar-length, curly brown hair. He was wearing a baseball cap, a yellow jacket or shirt and red pants, and had a longboard.

Suspect No. 2 — A white male, 5-foot-9 in height, in his 30s, with a medium build and wearing all black and a backpack.

Anyone with any information is encouraged to contact UCPD at 510-642-0472 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or at 510-642-6760 at all other times.
