UCLA sex assault suspect turns himself in to police

October 07, 2013|By KTLA-TV Channel 5

A 20-year-old man accused of trying to assault two women near UCLA residence halls turned himself in to police over the weekend.

Daniel Fernando Hoyos Isaza of Santa Clarita surrendered to university police with his attorney present around 1 p.m. Sunday, Lt. Mark Littlestone of the University of California Police Department told KTLA-TV Channel 5. Authorities had released surveillance pictures of Isaza a day earlier in an effort to track his whereabouts.

Police say Isaza grabbed a woman from behind near Rieber Hall about 2:30 a.m. Friday, but was scared off after two people interrupted the alleged attack. 

“Thankfully, they did,” Littlestone told KTLA.

Investigators believe he then “grabbed the buttocks” of another woman while leaving the campus.

Isaza is a student at Cal State Northridge, but was not linked to sex assaults being investigated at that campus, police said.

“I walked home from a party alone the other day and I’m not doing that anymore,” said Annie Stout, a UCLA freshman.

Isaza was scheduled to be transferred to the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department’s Inmate Reception Center in downtown Los Angeles.
