Investigators are trying to locate a man who assaulted a woman near Santa Clara University early this morning, a police sergeant said. Officers responded to a report of an assault in the 1000 block of Lexington Street at about 1:30 a.m., Santa Clara police Sgt. Derek Rush said. The woman told arriving officers that a man had grabbed her from behind but that she managed to get away, Rush said. Initial reports indicated that the man used a weapon in the assault, but Rush said police weren’t able to confirm that.

The woman was not injured, he said. Rush said there was a 20-minute delay in the reporting of the crime, so when officers conducted a K-9 search “the dog lost interest pretty fast. He did not say whether the woman is a student at the school. Police do not yet have a suspect description. Rush said today’s incident is not believed to be related to a crime that occurred around 4 a.m. on July 26 in the 2800 block of Homestead Road. In that case, a man broke into a woman’s home and sexually assaulted her.
