The UC Berkeley police department has issued sketches of two assailants involved in attacks on female students on the Cal campus over the past few days, made with the help of descriptions from the victims.

The sketch on the left, above, is of a young man, described as white in his 20s with blond or light brown hair, “bad teeth” and medium height, who, on Thursday April 7th at around 10:50pm, grabbed a woman inappropriately on the east side of the Valley Life Sciences Building.

The man in the drawing, above right, described as white male, also in his 20s, with short brown hair, approximately 5’7″ in height, approached a woman from behind and robbed her, then forced the victim off the path and made her perform a sexual act on him. This took place on April 8th at about 12:30am in area of Haviland Grove.

UCPD is actively investigating this case and is looking at the similarities between this case and other recently reported sexual batteries. Anyone with information which could help lead to arrests, should contact the UCPD at 510-642 0472 between 8am-5pm and 510-642 6760 at other times.

  1. I was thinking the same thing… White guys in hoodies or caps hanging around the Cal campus are a pretty common site.

    I guess the main thing to learn from this is that no matter how safe the campus may seem sometimes, women should not traverse the campus alone after dark.

    Always be on the alert, and always stay in groups. Even if you’re just going a short distance.
