BPD says the teen committed the sexual assault at Bakersfield College, kidnapped and sexually assaulted a 15-year-old in April and also sexually assaulted a woman in March. 

Robinson now faces 13 felonies. He's set to be in court on Monday afternoon. 


Bakersfield Police have confirmed that the person who sexually assaulted a woman at Bakersfield College on Thursday is likely the same person who attacked a girl in April.

In April, BPD investigated a sexual assault of a 15-year-old girl. The suspect was on the loose. 

On Thursday, police caught a suspect in the middle of a sexual assault in a women's restroom on the campus of Bakersfield College. 

This morning police say that person, who they have not identified, is the same person who committed the sexual assault in April.
