A 15-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted by a pair of young men while exercising at the Downtown Berkeley YMCA at 7:30 p.m. Friday, said Berkeley Police Lt. Russell Lopes.
While working out with a friend, the victim was allegedly approached by two men who had also been exercising in the gym.
Lopes said the suspects engaged the girls in conversation and asked if they had boyfriends. Lopes said the men then crowded the victim into a corner and one fondled her breasts while the other fondled her buttocks. Lopes said the woman screamed for help and the assailants ran off. The suspects are described as black males, 18 to 20 years old and thin.
Two male students in their early 20s walking near College Avenue and Channing Way were nearly robbed early Saturday morning, said Lt. Russell Lopes.
One suspect was allegedly drunk and yelling obscenities at the two victims.
When one of the victims asked the him whom he was talking to, the other man allegedly punched him. The punch caused one of the victims to fall to the ground, Lopes said. When the victim tried to get up, he was punched again and fell back to the ground.
While on the ground, the suspects searched the pockets of both students, Lopes said.
The suspects ran off without taking any of the victims possessions. The suspects are described as one white male in a cowboy hat and blue Hawaiian shirt and a black male in a red T-shirt.
