Safety Advisory About the Calaveras River Bike Path
The Stockton Police Department responded to a reported sexual assault along the Calaveras River bicycle path near campus Thursday morning. The victim, a female jogger, reported the incident to police shortly before 9 a.m. Police are looking for a thin Caucasian or Hispanic male in his 20’s, with long hair in a pony tail and a tongue piercing, wearing a black baseball cap and brown backpack, and riding a BMX style bicycle. The incident appears to not have involved any students, faculty or staff.
When using the bicycle trail, please consider these safety tips:
- Never jog or walk on the path alone. Always exercise with a partner.
- Be aware of your surroundings. Stay constantly vigilant and on the lookout for people who are standing off of the path or seem to be out of place. Keep your guard up. If a jogger or bicyclist passes you, make sure that person has not doubled back and is following you.
- When listening to music, keep the volume low enough so you can hear people approaching you from behind.
- Carry a cellular phone with you for emergencies. Consider carrying a whistle or pepper spray for defense.
- Do not use the path before sunrise or after sunset. Updates on this case will be posted on this Web page as available.
