A female student was sexually assaulted early Saturday at a party in Isla Visa, according to the UCSB Police Department.

The suspect was described only as a college-age white male with brown hair, police said, adding that he left in an unknown direction.

The Santa Barbara County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the attack.

Anyone with information about this assault is asked to contact the Sheriff’s Department at 805.683.2724 or Crime Stoppers

Shock and Awe. A woman assaulted in Isla Vista. With the kind of party culture that is fostered amongst the UCSB students, I’m surprised we don’t have a headline like this every week.
