University police are searching for a man who allegedly sexually battered a UCLA student Wednesday.

The student was outside of Bruin Plate at 10:30 p.m. when the man approached her from behind and grabbed her buttocks, according to a UCPD alert. The man then fled north on Charles E. Young Drive West.

UCPD described the man as white, 5 feet, 11 inches tall and about 160 pounds with short, curly brown hair and a trimmed brown beard. He was last seen wearing dark clothing and a gray backpack with a red stripe.
