A woman walking along Mendocino Avenue near Santa Rosa Junior College was sexually assaulted Oct. 15. There have been no arrests in connection with the case.

The Press Democrat reported the woman was walking north toward Ridgeway Avenue around 10:15 p.m. when a man came up behind her, grabbed her and pushed her into the bushes nearby. 

The woman was listening to music as she walked, according to Santa Rosa Detective Sgt. Terry Anderson. The attack lasted for about a minute.

The Press Democrat reported the woman was able to get away from her attacker and call 911. Authorities took her to a nearby hospital for treatment.

The suspect is described as Latino, 5 feet 8 inches tall, about 140 pounds and in his 20s. He is thin and possibly has facial hair or a goatee. Santa Rosa police believe there is no connection between the suspect and victim.

SRJC District Police offer an escort service to help students stay safe when walking alone on campus, especially at night. Call (707) 527-1000 and an officer or cadet will escort you to your destination.
