From the Sacramento State Police Department

In compliance with the provisions of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998, the Sacramento State Police Department is providing this information for the purpose of promoting campus safety and to aid in the investigation and prevention of similar crimes.

On September 23, 2022, Sacramento State Police received a report of a sexual assault that occurred off campus. On October 5, 2022, a Campus Security Authority received a report of a sexual assault that occurred on campus several weeks ago. The suspect in both cases is believed to be the same person. In both of these cases, the suspect met the victims on campus and identified himself to the victims as a Sacramento State Student. The Sacramento State Police Department has determined that the suspect is not currently enrolled at Sacramento State but may use the facilities.  He also may be affiliated with San Jose State. The suspect is a white male, approximately 22 years old, with brown hair and brown eyes, 6’ tall, and 175 pounds. He goes by the name “Zayn.” 

The Sacramento State Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to these crimes to contact Sacramento State Police Department at (916) 278-6000.

Safety Information

No one deserves to be sexually assaulted, stalked or victimized in any way. Sexual assault is illegal, a violation of University policy, and 100 percent the responsibility of the perpetrator. With this in mind, Sacramento State suggests the following tips for keeping our community safe and reducing personal risk.
What You Can Do to Help Stop Sexual Violence in the Community
      Be an active bystander. If you see something that doesn’t seem right, intervene if you can do so safely, and report the incident to campus authorities.
      Don’t engage in any behavior that may be considered sexual violence, domestic violence, dating violence, stalking, or any other form of violence.
      Sexual contact requires mutual affirmative consent. Affirmative Consent means an informed, affirmative, conscious, voluntary, and mutual agreement to engage in sexual activity. An incapacitated person (for example, a person who is intoxicated by drugs or alcohol) may be incapable of giving consent.
      Never use force, coercion, threats, alcohol or other drugs to engage in sexual activity.
      Remember, “no” means “No!” and “stop” means “Stop!”
     Don’t mistake submission or silence for consent.
What You Can Do to Help Minimize Your Risk of Becoming a Victim
      Trust your feelings; if something doesn’t feel right, it probably isn’t.
     Stay alert and be aware of your surroundings.
      Stay sober and watch out for dates and/or anyone who tries to get you drunk or high.
      Clearly communicate limits to partners, friends, and acquaintances.
      When partying, make a plan with your friends to watch out for each other and leave together.
      Learn all you can, and talk with your friends. Help them stay safe.
      Report incidents of violence to law enforcement and campus authorities.
      Program the Sacramento State Police Department’s dispatch number, (916) 278-6000, into your phone.
      Learn the location of the nearest emergency “blue” phones on your walking routes through the campus.
      Utilize the Hornet Night Shuttle, (916) 278-7260, or contact the Sacramento State Police Department for an escort when on campus at night.
      Never be afraid to make noise if you are attacked; yell, scream, and try to attract attention. The last thing an attacker wants is to have someone take notice.
