A suspect has been arrested in a sexual assault reported over the weekend in Palo Alto, police said late Tuesday.
Palo Alto police said it worked closely with officers from the University of California at Berkeley Police Department to make the arrest.
Police at UC Berkeley announced earlier in the day it made an arrest in a string of sexual batteries reported near or on campus. It was not immediately clear if the suspect arrested in the UC Berkeley case is the same one in the Palo Alto incident. NBC Bay Area has reached out to police for more information.
The Palo Alto sexual assault was reported Sunday afternoon in a pedestrian underpass.
Palo Alto police say they received a call at 2:49 p.m. from a passerby that a woman in the California Avenue underpass was sexually assaulted.
The victim was in her 50s and suffered moderate injuries, police said.
