Police at UCLA were attempting to identify a man who sexually battered a victim outside the campus' Faculty Center, officers said Monday.

The man approached the victim on May 31 between 11 and 11:35 a.m. and asked for directions to the Faculty Center, according to a press release from UC police.

The victim then led the man to the building and, once they were out front, the man sexually battered the victim, officials said.

The crime was reported to police on June 6 around 2:20 p.m.

UCLA police did not reveal any information about the victim, including the person's gender or whether or not they are a student.

The man was described as a Latino in his 50s who was around 5 feet 8 inches tall with a thin build, dark eyes and dark, unkempt hair that was cut short. He also had a 5-inch beard that was gray and rounded at the bottom, officials said.

The man was last seen wearing a brown jacket, blue-and-gray checkered shirt, blue jeans and dirty gray-blue canvas shoes with red trim around the ankle, according to police.
