Lodger accused of sexual assault

On Feb. 15, a Toyon residential staff member alerted two University officials that Akeen Valdez, who is not a Stanford student but was living in Toyon with a resident, had been accused of sexual assault by a female Toyon resident. It would be more than a month before a stay-away letter was issued against Valdez, and more than two months before he would be escorted off campus by University officials.
