Police say it happened near Haviland Grove around 12:30 a.m. The student says she was walking through campus when a man grabbed her from behind, sexually assaulted her and robbed her. Police say there have been several similar attacks recently on campus.
"The suspect description does match the general description of some other incidents that occurred on campus recently, however we have not ruled anything out," said U.C. Berkeley Police Lt. Alex Yao.
The rapist is described as a white man in his 20s with short brown hair, around 5'7" with a thin build. He was wearing blue denim overalls and a green sweatshirt.
U.C. Berkeley police are asking for information from anyone who was in the area during the time of the assault.
