A 27-year-old transgender student at Cal State Long Beach reported he was assaulted in a university restroom at 9:30 p.m. on April 15.
The student said he was approached by a suspect in a restroom located on the west side of the KKJZ building.
According to a press release, "the suspect called the student by his first name, and the student responded. The student reported the suspect then pulled the student's T-shirt up and over the student's head and pushed him back into the stall. The suspect then used a sharp object to slash the student's chest. The suspect then fled the area in an unknown direction of travel."
According to CSULB Director Of Media Relations Richard Gloady, "no one has been arrested."
University Police believe this was an isolated incident and that there is no additional threat to the campus community.
"All manners are being handled through our public affairs office," said University Police Captain Fernando Solorzano.
Public Affairs Assistant Vice President Toni Beron was unable to be reached for comment.
Officers are investigating the case and ask that anyone who has information regarding the case contact Det. Johnny Leyva at 562-985-4101.
