UCPD arrested a suspect in connection to an aggravated assault in Wheeler Hall, according to a Nixle alert released about 10 a.m.  Tuesday.

The alert relayed an instance in which a female UC Berkeley employee was the victim of an assault with caustic chemicals in Wheeler Hall on April 4.

The victim entered a restroom in Wheeler Hall about 1:35 a.m. and encountered the male suspect, according to the alert, then told the suspect the building was closed and asked him to leave. The suspect then followed the victim after she left the restroom, threw a caustic chemical at her and then fled the scene.

The victim suffered from chemical burns and was transported by Berkeley Fire Department to a local emergency room, according to the alert.
