The victim was approached by a male suspect, who engaged her in a brief conversation. After a couple of minutes, the two went their separate ways. Moments later, as the victim was still on the campus, the suspect approached her again, grabbed her and sexually assaulted her before fleeing on foot.Investigation led to the identification of Brown (see attached photo) as the suspect in this assault. He was later positively identified by the victim as the man who assaulted her. Detectives executed a search warrant at Brown's residence, where they found evidence linking him to the incident. Brown is currently being held on $1,210,000 bail.
