The assault occurred around 5:45 a.m. on the campus located on W. Washington Boulevard in South Los Angeles. 

According to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, the victim was walking along a pathway when an unidentified suspect, described as appearing homeless, aggressively approached her with his right hand raised as if to strike her.
