STOCKTON - Campus security is once again an issue at San Joquin Delta College in Stockton after a woman was grabbed on campus Wednesday afternoon.

The woman was not injured and the man got away.

"Walked up behind her and gave her a hug. He had his hands around her waist, and with his right hand, tried to unbuckle her belt. He then kissed her neck," Delta police Officer Jim Bocksaid said.

Roughly three months ago, another woman at Delta was grabbed sexually while in a stairwell. There have been no arrests in either incident.

Bock said students need to walk in pairs or groups, be aware of their surroundings and report incidents as soon as they happen. There was a 20-minute gap between Wednesday's incident and the time police learned of it.

Some female students at Delta said they're careful on campus.

"If I hear something I'm not sure about, I'll look behind me and I may pick up my pace," Sarah Knauss said.

"I make sure in stairwells someone is with me, and I carry a knife. I haven't used it yet, thankfully," Caitlin Baird said.

Delta's new structures on campus also reflect a more secure approach. Stairways and walkways are outdoors and open to light. Many of the college's older buildings have dark stairways and halls.
