October 7, 2017 (San Diego) – Campus police at San Diego State University are asking for public help to identify a suspect accused of attacking a female student Sunday around 10:30 p.m. 

The victim told police she was walking in the 4900 block of Campanile Drive when a man threw water in her face, then wrestled her to the ground. She managed to fight off the assailant, who fled in a faded, dark blue car. The suspect was described as a Hispanic man, about 6 feet tall and weighing about 180 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He wore a dark, long-sleeve shirt and dark pants.

Although the bulletin was released by SDSU police, the San Diego Police Department is investigating the crime. Anyone with information on the incident was asked to contact SDPD at (619) 531-2000 or Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
