San Francisco State University police are seeking a suspect after an 18-year old woman was sexually assualted at a dorm room last week, according to reports.

The woman, who is not being identified, was duped into walking into a dorm room on Friday, thinking it was a party, according to the San Francisco Examiner.

She was in the Towers dorm building at Centennial Square when an unknown man lured her into the room after he overheard her and friends looking for a party in the building's lobby.

He seemed "friendly enough," the woman reported, and she entered an elevator with him. They went to an unknown floor where he took her into an unknown dorm room and sexually assualted her, the Examiner reported. She managed to flee and contact police. The woman is not a student; it is not known if the assailant is a resident or a visitor, the newspaper said.

The suspect is described as a mixed-race man between ages 18 and 22. He has short hair, stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighs about 180 pounds, according to police.

The rape is the first at SF State since 2009.
