Oct. 5 suspect.
NORTHRIDGE (CNS) – Cal State Northridge police have released a sketch of a man wanted for attempted sexual assaults on women students on and near the campus.
The most recent crime occurred on Saturday, Oct.5, between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m., when a student at University Park Apartments, off Zelzah Avenue south of Lassen Street, was awakened by a man standing over her, touching her bare leg, according to Christina Villalobos of CSUN campus police.
A sketch of the suspect shows a black man in his 20s, about 6 feet and 180 pounds, with a thin, athletic build and a scar on his chin. On Saturday, he was wearing a red Adidas, hooded sweatshirt with white lettering on it and light-colored blue jeans, Villalobos said.
Sept. 29 suspect.
On Sept. 29, about 1 a.m. in the parking lot of the same apartment complex, a woman was approached by four men who offered her money and made sexual advances, she said. Two of the men grabbed her, but she was able to break free, Villalobos said.
On October 2, another similar crime happened about 10:40 p.m. in the apartment complex mailroom, Villalobos said. Four suspects cornered a woman in the mailroom, but she used a stun gun to shock one of them, and all four fled, she said.
Anyone with more information as to the name or whereabouts of the suspect in the sketch was asked to call Detective Sgt. Mark Benavidez at (818) 677-3901.
