FULLERTON, Calif. - Police increased patrols at Cal State Fullerton after a reported rape and within a month that a retired administrator who was working on campus as a consultant was found stabbed to death.
Police initially reported that a woman said she was sexually assaulted in the elevator of the Nutwood parking garage on the south side of campus as she was going back to her car around 12 a.m. Tuesday.
"She reported that she had walked to the structure at about midnight and a male came up behind her inside the elevator," said Cal State Fullerton police Capt. Scot Willey. "She ended up on the ground where he raped her."
Authorities later learned that the rape did not occur on campus, but somewhere else in the county of Orange.
The suspect was described as a white male around 25-years-old with shoulder-length brown hair, wearing a navy blue plain t-shirt, black shorts, was about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighed 160 pounds.
Anyone who spots the suspect is urged to call 911.
Police were working to release a composite sketch of the attacker. The sketch was expected to be released around noon on Wednesday.
The university also announced they are sponsoring the cost of defensive classes this semester beginning September 20.
On August 19, 57-year-old Steven Shek Keung Chan, a retired Cal State Fullerton administrator, was fatally stabbed on campus. Police describe his death as a targeted attack.
The two cases are not related.
