A little after 7 am this morning, a female student was running westbound on the sidewalk along Panorama, when a male approached her in a vehicle driving against traffic, telling her that he could give her a ride. When she ignored him, he started yelling at her demanding that she get in the car.

She ran through the interior of campus and made contact with Bakersfield College staff.

The man is described as white, mid to late 40s with long dirty blonde/brown hair.

He was seen driving a 1990s Gold Toyota Camry with faded paint spots and a gray fur steering wheel cover.
