On Thursday, August 30, 2012 at 11:55 p.m. two sexual batteries occurred in the Unit 1 Housing Complex at Putnam Hall. An intoxicated male resident assaulted a female victim in the lobby of Putnam Hall when he grabbed her inappropriately. The victim pushed the suspect away who then entered an elevator. A subsequent incident occurred on an upper floor when the same intoxicated male student pinned a second female victim against a wall while groping and kissing her against her will. Other residents on the floor pulled the suspect off the victim. The suspect left the scene. UCPD was notified and the suspect was arrested for the sexual batteries. The victims were not physically injured during the encounters. The suspect is no longer a resident of Putnam Hall.
The suspect is described as:
MELIKA, Vincent Andrew, a White male, 18 years of age, 6’0” in height, 160 lbs., clean shaven, with medium length brown hair and brown eyes.
