BERKELEY -- UC Berkeley police are looking for a man who reportedly groped a female student Thursday night.

The 21-year-old student was attacked about 7:30 p.m. on a walkway between Barker and Koshland halls, according to a statement police issued Friday evening.

The man, described as Hispanic and in his late 20s or early 30s, allegedly grabbed the student from behind "with both of his hands and grabbed her genital area over her clothing around her waist."
