A 22-year-old Cal Poly student stepped out of her shower Monday evening and found a man in her apartment who tried to sexually assault her, according to the San Luis Obispo Police Department.
The suspect, whom the victim did not know, fled before raping the woman, police said. The victim did not suffer any injuries.
The woman described the suspect as a light-skinned black or Hispanic man in his mid to late 20s. He was about 5 feet 9 inches to 5 feet 10 inches tall, with an average build and possibly a shaved head, the victim said.
The suspect wore a white plaid shirt, black leather style jacket, black ski gloves and blue jeans with tan stitching. He had white Converse shoes on his feet.
Anyone who has information about the crime is asked to contact the police department or Crime Stoppers. San Luis Obispo police are also instructing residents to lock and secure their windows and doors and to report suspicious activity in their neighborhoods.
