Students are away on spring break, but one professor is on their minds. Two weeks ago, a female professor was attacked and robbed inside the women’s bathroom at Holt Center.READ MORE: 'I Saw The Suffering In People's Faces: Sacramento Man Finds Strollers For War-Torn Refugees
“My mom also attends here,” said student Giovanni Fernandez. “So to hear that it was an older woman attacked in one of her most vulnerable states, in front of a bathroom, it’s scary, because it could have been my mom or any other student that I know.”
Students and police are wondering who is the woman seen on surveillance video the professor identified as her attacker. The suspect was already inside the bathroom when the professor walked in. When the professor walked into the stall, the suspect pushed her from behind, into the wall.READ MORE: City To Vote On Project That Would Add Speed Bumps To More Sacramento Neighborhoods
“The push kind of launched her into the wall,” said Delta College police Sgt. Jim Brock. “She was already compromised – she was walking with a cane from a previous injury. We’re hearing she has some possibly long-term damage, post concussive.”
The suspect robbed her of her jewelry before running out, but she was already caught on camera. But even with the good picture, police haven’t arrested her yet.MORE NEWS: Massive Outdoor Recreation Area Nears Opening In Elk Grove
Delta College hopes offering a $1,000 reward will motivate someone to come forward with information leading to an arrest.
