Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department detectives are investigating a report of a sexual assault that allegedly took place in a Saugus restroom Friday afternoon.

Sheriff’s officials confirmed they received a report of a sexual assault taking place in a community restroom near a pool for condominiums on the 20800 block of Plum Canyon Road. The alleged assault took place sometime between 4-5 p.m. Friday.

It was reported to the Sheriff’s Station at approximately 9 p.m.

The victim was a woman in her 20s who knew her attacker, according to officials, who said the man was a “casual acquaintance.”

The victim described the suspect as a male black adult, 20-25, 5’6″ to 5’10” in height, and 140 to 160 pounds, according to Sheriff’s Station officials.
