A woman was sexually assaulted by an unknown man near the E-1 building construction walkway at East Los Angeles College last Monday.
ELAC’s Crime Bulletin said at around 5:30 p.m. a woman was walking down the construction walkway when a man came from behind her, lifted up her skirt and grabbed her.
Deputy Alberto Romero said that the victim was not a student, but was attending an orientation to see if was going to attend ELAC.
Romero said that the crime was not common at ELAC, but it’s important to take the precautions.
“We recommend people walk with partners and friends and always be aware of their surroundings at night,” Romero said.
The Sheriff station is still investigating the case to find the suspect.
The victim described the suspect as a light skinned Hispanic male, around 25 to 29 years old, 6 feet tall and had acne on his face. He was last seen wearing a black t-shirt, gray cargo shorts and was carrying a green binder.
“We’re connecting patrol checks, staying visible and handing out flyers to keep students aware and to take precaution,” Romero said.
