Battery and unwanted kissing incident reported at Campus and Galvez


A female student was unwillingly lifted off of the ground and kissed on the forehead by a 17-year-old who ran up to her at the intersection of Campus and Galvez late Thursday night. The male suspect then asked the victim to get into his car with him; she declined and he left, according to an AlertSU Crime Alert sent to the Stanford community.

This is an update to the alert sent on Friday, 6/14/2019, regarding a battery (unwanted kissing). Public Safety has identified the suspect, a 17 year old juvenile. He was cited and released for assault and battery.

The suspect, described as a 6-foot Asian/Indian man with short black/brown hair, was cited and released for assault and battery.

“At this time there is no ongoing threat to the community,” an AlertSU update released on Sunday reads.

This article has been updated to note that the victim is a Stanford student and to reflect information released in an AlertSU update on the situation.
