Cal State Northridge Police Looking For Man Who Punched 2 People In Unprovoked Attacks

NORTHRIDGE (   — Police at Cal State Northridge Saturday were telling the public to be on the lookout for a man who punched two people in the face in unprovoked attacks in a campus parking lot.

Police said the man attacked the two people, complete strangers, in broad daylight.

The victims were hit about 2:15 p.m. Wednesday in parking lot B-6, according to campus police.

In each case, the suspect also challenged the victims to a fight, police said.

Authorities said they were working on a possible lead. They did not have surveillance video but had a detailed description of the man they are looking for.

The suspect was described as black, about 19 years old, 6 feet 4 inches tall with a slender build, short black hair and a light goatee. He was wearing a dark, long-sleeved shirt and blue jean shorts when he was last seen walking north through the parking lot.

Witnesses said the man — who could be a student — left the area walking northbound.

Anyone with information about the attacks was urged to contact the CSUN police Investigations Unit at (818) 677-3826 or (818) 677-6919.
