PASADENA, Calif. (KABC) --Authorities are searching for a man suspected of raping another man inside a Pasadena City College locker room.
The incident happened Tuesday around 5:15 p.m. Authorities said a college student was raped inside the W-building men's locker room.
The suspect is described as a man standing 5 feet 8 inches tall, weighing 170 pounds, between the age of 20 and 22. He has a shaved head with a mullet type of hairstyle in the back, a septum piercing and was last seen wearing a dark long-sleeved shirt with khaki pants.
PCC superintendent and president, Rajen Vurdien, said the incident was "an affront to the values shared by PCC's faculty, staff and students."
"We are marshaling every resource at our disposal to ensure campus safety, provide a safe environment for our students, and bring the perpetrator to justice. Our hearts go out to the victim and his family and friends," he said.
The college also provided a list of safety tips and resources for students compiled by RAINN, the nation's largest anti-sexual violence organization.
