The suspect was described as a 6-foot Black male with a medium to large build wearing dark pants and carrying a blue backpack, according to the UCPD crime log.

The log also said Christian Richardson was arrested Friday for two alleged counts of battery and one count of allegedly resisting arrest at the Valley Life Sciences Building about 10:43 a.m. Richardson was transported to Highland Hospital via ambulance for a psychiatric evaluation with a criminal hold.

Two women reported a suspicious person allegedly peeping in the fourth floor coed restrooms of the Unit 2 Griffith building about 9:45 a.m. Friday, according to the log.

The suspect was described as a 6-foot Black male with a light to medium complexion, dark hair with a faded haircut, the log said. Witnesses described him as being in his 20s.

The log stated that Reza Rahimian was arrested about 10:46 a.m. Saturday for allegedly brandishing a knife and an axe, as well as for alleged unlawful possession of a weapon on UC property. This incident began as a family domestic disturbance, but resulted in the arrest of Rahimian, an unaffiliated male. Rahimian will undergo a psychiatric evaluation with a criminal hold, according to Reich.
