UCLA campus police Tuesday circulated a photo of a man who allegedly committed a sexual battery against a woman who was walking near the campus, then fled after she took his picture with her cell phone.

The woman, whose name was withheld, told authorities that she was walking south in the 600 block of Gayley Avenue about 1 a.m. Monday when the man “passed by her and sexually battered her,” according to a UCLA police statement. “The victim then confronted the suspect and recorded him on her cell phone.”

The suspect grabbed the phone, but later gave it back to the woman, then fled in a gray Nissan sedan with dark tinted windows, according to campus police.

He was described as black, 20-25 years old and 6 feet tall, with a muscular build. He wore a black sweatshirt with “San Francisco” written on it in block letters, along with black sweat pants and black athletic shoes.

Anyone with information on the case was urged to call campus police at (310) 825-1492.
