A UC Berkeley student who was sexually assaulted on campus in December reported the incident to UCPD last Wednesday.
The student was walking by the southeast entrance of Martin Luther King Jr. Student Union at 2 a.m. when she was grabbed from behind by an unknown suspect.
The suspect was described as a white male, 6-foot-2 in stature, 18 to 22 years old and smelling strongly of marijuana. The suspect did not appear to be homeless, said UCPD Lt. Doug Wing.
The student was able to fight off the suspect and escape, according to a police report.
