SAN DIEGO — A second San Diego State college student has reported being sexually assaulted in the college area by what she believed was her passenger, police said Wednesday. It is the second such report in two weeks.
The 19-year-old student said she was attacked sometime between midnight and 2 a.m. on August 19, police said. Investigators say the victim and a friend were in the 5000 block of Rockford Drive when they requested a ride. A car they believed to be their driver arrived and the two got in.
“The man drove off and sexually assaulted the victim in the car before dropping the couple off several blocks away,” police said.
The victim’s friend witnessed the assault, police said.
Nine days later, on August 28, the report was filed with the SDSU Police Department. SDSU police then notified SDPD as the attack took place off campus.
The man is described as being in his mid-20s, with a heavy accent, a medium-tone complexion, being 5’7″ and of medium build. He was wearing a dark t-shirt and baggy basketball shorts.
The car was only described as a dark sedan.
SDPD is investigating a similar report on August 27, a day before the second report. Police say they have not been able to establish a clear link between the two, but similar circumstances exist.
Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call the SDPD’s Sex Crimes Unit at 619-531-2210 or Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.
