It's terrible that the woman was sexually assaulted in Tam Valley. The description of the man that assaulted her is lacking a whole lot of detail; tall overweight black male isn't enough information to find that man. Was he young or older? Was he dark skinned or light brown? What are his facial features? Any tatoos? Is there a police drawing of him? What was he wearing?

From what I've gathered from other news sources it was a young MAN that was sexually assaulted by this monster. This attacker is still on the loose- please be vigilant everyone.

This story was changed to correctly say that it was a male victim. And it is misleading (as usual) as the incident started at Marin Jr College. Also the orignal article got spread all over the place with the wrong sex of the victim.

Citizen- the headline says Tam Valley because this is where the assault took place and the last place the suspect was seen.

I think the title should read, "Man kidnapped and sexually assaulted at gunpoint."..."in Tam Valley." When this guy gets caught, he will never see the outside of prison. Aggravated kidnapping. Carjacking. Use of gun while committing a crime. False inprisonment. Sexual Assault. Probably a few more.

If you look at your address link PATCH, is says "WOMAN-sexually-assaulted", please correct . . .

NO there were two stories. A man was assaulted and a woman was assaulted. Is this correct? Were they together? It says they were both taken from a Marin Community College? What location? Geeez. This is awful and scary!
