    The victim allegedly then struggled with the man, who fled the scene in an unknown direction.

    After the incident, UCSD Police sent an email to all students, staff and faculty early Friday urging them to “be on alert.” University officials are currently investigating the incident and it's unclear whether or not the suspect was a student.

    The man was described as being in his 20s, short and wearing dark baggy pants and a thick long sleeve shirt at the time of the incident.

    According to UCSD’s most recent crime statistics, in 2009, there were four forcible sex offences and one non-forcible sex offence on campus.
