    Man beaten near SJSU

    San Jose State University police are trying to identify a man who  lured a female student into a secluded area and groped her after offering her  a cigarette Monday morning.
        The student was sitting on a bench on campus near South Seventh  and East San Fernando streets sometime between 9:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. when the  suspect offered her the cigarette, university police Sgt. Robert Noriega  said.

        He then lured her into the alcove of a nearby building, where he  groped her and tried to keep her from leaving, Noriega said.     She was able to break free and caught a bus nearby, but the  suspect followed her onto the bus, Noriega said.
        The suspect eventually got off the bus, and the victim rode the  bus to the end of the line at Capitol Expressway, then reported the incident  to police at about 11 a.m.
        Police are now looking for the suspect, who is described as a  black man in his 30s, about 5 feet 8 inches tall, with buck teeth and crooked  lower front teeth. He was wearing a blue shirt and black pants.
        An alert was sent out to students Monday afternoon notifying them  of the incident, Noriega said.
        Anyone with information on the case is asked to call SJSU police  at (408) 924-2222. Those wishing to remain anonymous can call (408) 337-2919  or email sjsu@tipnow.org.
