NORTHRIDGE (CBSLA) — A Cal State Northridge student has been arrested on suspicion of multiple sexual assaults dating back more than a year, and police think there might be more victims at other schools.
Davis Moreno-Jaime, 19, was taken into custody on the CSUN campus Friday at about 12:30 p.m. in connection with alleged sexual assaults that happened from April 2017 to July of this year. Authorities were short on details Friday.
“I will say that this was not your stereotypical, jumping out of the bushes-kind of thing,” said CSUN Police Chief Anne Glavin at a press conference following the Moreno-Jaime’s arrest. “There are other cases and other victims relating to this suspect. I am sure you realize we cannot and will not discuss the details of any of these cases at this time.”
Moreno-Jaime was on the school’s 2017 soccer team, according to the school’s newspaper.
“On behalf of the CSUN community, we extend our deepest sympathies to everyone impacted by these disgusting crimes,” university President Dianne Harrison told reporters.
“I want to make it clear: CSUN does not tolerate sexual assault, period. We do not take the crimes committed by or against members of our community lightly,” Harrison said in a statement.
Fellow CSU soccer players who know Moreno-Jaime told CBS2 News they saw a social media post warning people to stay clear of him.
“One of my friends put it up like a week, two weeks ago saying that […] we should should be very careful of him, that I don’t know what he did, exactly, but we’re just seeing that we should be very careful of him on campus or if you see him around,” said Lekan Ajibade. “[It’s] difficult for a lot of people to come out when they are victimized in such a way.”
Anyone who thinks they may have been a victim of Moreno-Jaime is urged to call Los Angeles police detectives at (818)832-0609 or CSUN police at (818)677-6919.
