Investigators at Sacramento State are dealing with a series of sexual assault and are warning students to be alert.

Sacramento State University police are investigating a second reported sexual assault within a month in a campus parking lot.

A female student told campus police that she was entering her vehicle on the top floor of a parking structure when she was assaulted Monday evening. The victim said she didn’t see the assailant and couldn’t give a description.

Last month, another student said three men pulled her into a van and sexually assaulted her in a different campus parking lot. Police aren’t immediately saying if the cases are related.

Police say they’re increasing their patrols and the escorts available for students. 

Some students are now arming themselves for protection.

Sac State police are encouraging students to walk in groups and report any suspicious activity.

Campus statistics show three forcible sex offenses at the university last year and none in 2007.
