Search Continues For Suspect In Sexual Assault On UCLA’s Campus

WESTWOOD (CBS) — Authorities Sunday continued to search for a man suspected in a sexual assault on UCLA’s campus last week, City News Service reported.

Campus police say the attack occurred just after 2 a.m. Friday near the popular Saxon Trail.

According to authorities, a female student was approached by a man named “Claude.”

After a brief conversation, the victim was pulled down onto the grassy area and sexually assaulted, according to police.

She escaped without physical injury.

The suspect is described as a white male, 6 feet tall and 150 pounds, approximately 21 years old with short brown hair and blue eyes.

UCLA police issued a crime alert and safety warning to students Friday.

With no arrests yet, many female students are on guard while others are taking extra safety measures on the trail and even considering alternate foot routes.

It is still unclear whether this case is isolated or connected to other sexual assaults that have taken place in the last two years.

Anyone with information regarding this incident is asked to contact UCLA campus police at (310) 825-1491.

    The text said that she was sexually assaulted but she escaped with physical injuries…hmmmmm! And what was she doing on the trail at 2 a.m?

      correction the text said that “She escaped without physical injury”.

      And that the victim was pulled down onto the grassy area and sexually assaulted, according to police. No physical injury but sexually assaulted? and what was she doing on the trail at 2 a.m.?

        You are right! Something does not sound right!

  • anger loco

    Why do girls always LIE… Something don’t sound right with her story! How did she know the suspect name was Claude? Why was she walking at 2a.m? And no physical injuries but it said she was sexually battered her.
    I find this story fishy.
    Thanks Sally For

      Probably Latino was the perpetrator. They are in great numbers over there.

      • Sick of Racists

        Hey genius, the suspect is described as a 6 foot white male. What I don’t get is how she can tell he has blue eyes considering the little to no light available on a trail at 2 a.m. Sounds to me like she knows him. Frank, next time read the whole article before posting some idiotic racist comment.

    My conmemt below was meant for Will, not you. After posting I realized someone might think I was saying African Americans aren’t human. I wanted to clarify that before my posting ends up on some lunatic animal rights web site.
