The Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office on Thursday, Nov. 14, released a sketch of the suspect they believe sexually assaulted a student at De Anza College Monday, Nov. 4.

A 19-year-old female victim reported on Wednesday, Nov. 6, that a male sexually assaulted her in a stall of the Media & Learning Center’s first floor women’s restroom, according to a press release by the Santa Clara County Sheriff’s Office.

The victim told authorities that the suspect is a De Anza College student, based on her previous interactions with him on campus, but said that they are not friends.

She also reported that she does not know his real name, and believes the suspect goes by the name of “Johnny.”

The press release said the male suspect is either white or Latino, in his early 20s, is 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighs 180 to 200 pounds.

The suspect has shoulder-length dark brown hair, brown eyes, and acne on a clean-shaven chin.

He was last seen in a dark, long-sleeve button-up shirt and blue jeans.

Anyone with information on the identity of the suspect or the sexual assault is asked to reach the Office of the Sheriff at 408-808-4500, or an anonymous tip-line at 408-808-4431.
