A Pima Community College police report, obtained by Aztec Press on Feb. 1, offers some details about the Jan. 18 assault at Downtown Campus.
When PCC released information about the attack, it was referred to as an armed robbery and “attempted sexual assault.”
However, the police report states that a Sexual Assault Kit was requested and later administered at Tucson Medical Center.
The report also indicates that “processed evidence” was given to a police officer, transported to Pima College Police Headquarters and stored in a refrigerator and lockers.
Drugs may have been a contributing circumstance in the incident, according to the police report.
The report the Aztec Press received excluded most details concerning the incident, including what happened and how the victim escaped. Pima sometimes redacts police reports involving students, citing privacy laws.
As of press time, PCC officials had not responded to requests for additional information about the attack.
Students taking classes at Downtown Campus were notified about the incident through their Pima email.
Those outside of Downtown Campus were not informed, including faculty members from other campuses who were required to attend a meeting at the campus the following week.
The suspect is a black male with dreadlocks, early 20s, between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-11. Anyone with details is urged to call 911 or 88-CRIME.
