Police at Cal State San Marcos were on the lookout Wednesday for a young man suspected in the sexual assault of a student at the Quad residence hall.

The assault happened in the student housing center on East Barham Drive at Campus Way on Feb. 24, but it wasn't reported until Tuesday, campus police said.

The woman who reported it told police she knew her attacker and he is not a Cal State San Marcos student, authorities said. The suspect was described as white, 19 years old, 6 feet 2 inches tall and 215 pounds, with dirty blond hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information about the assault was asked to call campus police at (760) 750-4567 or the university's hotline at (760) 750-7233. Anonymous tips can be made by calling Crime Stoppers at (888) 580-8477.
