CAMARILLO (CBSLA) – Classes were canceled after a female student was reportedly assaulted in a restroom at Cal State University Channel Islands Wednesday and the possibly armed suspect was at large.

According to a campus-wide alert issued by the school, the assault occurred at approximately 11 a.m. in a second-floor bathroom in the Bell Tower building. The suspect was brandishing a handgun, the alert read.

The Ventura County Fire Department responded and transported the victim to a hospital with injuries suffered from a gun, the Ventura County Star reported.

Classes were canceled for the day and people were asked to avoid the campus, the alert stated.

According to the Star, the victim stumbled into a classroom across from the restroom following the attack.

“We’re in class and a girl in our class staggers in, hair all wet, clothes all ruined and says she was just attacked by girl in the bathroom with a gun,” student Chase Baker told the Star.

The suspect was described as a woman, 24 or 25 years old, with a medium complexion. She was wearing a gray shirt, black pants and gray Converse shoes.

California State University police were scouring the campus for the suspect. Anyone who sees the suspect should call 911.

  1. CSUCI is the most haunted College, in Southern California. It was a Mental Hospital from 1932 to 1997.

    24 or 25 years old and wearing a gray shirt, black pants and gray Converse shoes. Better look for the woman wearing those Converse shoes. WoW, that sure narrows it down to only about 20 or 30 million. Media’s so scared to say race why even report at all.
    The way so many lie these days for attention I’ll lay odds there never was an attacker.
