Police say the suspect arrested in a dormitory sex assault has no ties to UCLA.

The suspect who sexually assaulted a UCLA student in her dorm room early Friday is 41 and not affiliated with the university, campus police said Saturday.

Jeffery Brewer has been arrested on felony charges of forcible sexual penetration, burglary, false imprisonment and assault with intent to commit a felony. Bail has been set at $1,050,000.

The UCLA Police Department said in a news release that around 2:40 a.m. Friday, an unknown man entered the Saxon Suites residential dorm and attacked the student in her bed.

Police said the incident was reported soon after the man escaped from the room. It was reported that the man was fat, had a curly beard, and was wearing all black clothes and a hat.

After an all-day search, officers captured the suspect Friday night around 9:45 p.m. He was identified by the victim and two witnesses, campus police said.

The victim, whose age was not released, was given medical treatment at the scene, according to the news release.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Inmate Information Center, Brewer was previously arrested by UCLA police on July 11 of last year for an undisclosed offense.

UCLA had more sexual assault reports than any other school in the 10-campus University of California system — 36 between April 2023 and March 2024. Overall, 1,975 crimes were reported at UCLA during that period — theft and robbery was the biggest category, with 441 reports, UC systemwide data shows. Most of the arrests were of suspects not connected to the university of about 46,680 students.

UC Berkeley, the system's second-largest university, with about 45,700 students, had 14 sexual assaults reported out of 2,222 crimes between April 2023 and March 2024. Burglary, robbery and motor vehicle theft were the biggest issues there, with 1,000 crimes reported; most of the suspects were not even affiliated with campus.
