On October 12, a 19-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of having raped a student at California State University Channel Islands (CSUCI) in Camarillo, according to a report by The Ventura County Star.

University spokeswoman Nancy Gill said the crime was allegedly committed in a student housing facility before noon. Around 1:30 p.m., campus police received the report of the rape, the investigation of which was handed over to the Ventura County Sheriff's Office.

Students and others with the university received an email by police that contained information about the incident along with a description of the suspect.

The arrest of the suspect was made around 6:30 p.m. the same day. Another email was sent to notify the community of the event.

According to California Penal Code 261, rape is “an act of sexual intercourse” that is committed against the other person without his or her consent. This may be accomplished “against a person's will by force, violence, duress, menace, or fear of immediate and unlawful bodily injury on the person or another.” In any case, rape is a serious crime under California law and a conviction can result in a long prison sentence, thousands of dollars in fines, and mandatory registration as a violent sex offender.
