Stanford police are searching for a man who they said sexually assaulted a woman in a graduate-student apartment at Escondido Village Saturday night.
The man allegedly gained entry to the apartment on Comstock Circle and entered the woman's bedroom at about 9:30 p.m. The woman, a graduate student, was sleeping at the time, Stanford police said in a statement.
When she woke up and screamed, the suspect fled the scene, police said. The victim described the suspect as a dark-skinned male, possibly black, about 30 years old and 5 feet 6 inches tall. He was wearing blue jeans and possibly a dark T-shirt.
Police said the victim did not have any physical injuries.
Police are asking anyone with information about the crime to call 650-329-2413.
