University police say they were called to a disturbance at Campus Village A, an on campus dorm, on March 3.

Officers say the alleged victim, another San Jose State student had left the scene, but they eventually talked with him.


Since then two more alleged victims, both male San Jose State students have come forward, with one claiming an incident took place in 2014.
Police say all three allege alcohol was involved in the incidents.

Venegas faces five charges related to sexual assault.

University police are saying there appears to be a pattern with the alleged crimes.
