Suspect Jeffrey Brewer Arrested After Student Sexual Assault in UCLA Dorm Room

Jul 8, 2024

The UCLA Police Department has announced that Jeffery Brewer, 41, was arrested Friday on suspicion of sexually assaulting a woman in her campus dorm room.

Brewer allegedly entered Saxon Suites residential dorms at around 2:40 a.m. Friday and sexually assaulted a student in her bed. The woman was medically treated at the scene, according to UCLA Police.

How Brewer was able to enter the building was not disclosed, but UCLA students told NBC Los Angeles that because the dorms do not have air conditioning, “everyone leaves windows open at night.”

The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Inmate Information Center did confirm that Brewer was previously arrested by UCLA police in July 2023 on unspecified misdemeanor charges.

After a day-long search by police, Jeffrey Brewer was arrested on multiple sex crimes felony charges, including:

  • Forcible sexual penetration
  • Burglary
  • False imprisonment
  • Assault with intent to commit a felony

The victim and two witnesses positively identified the suspect.

Brewer is currently being held at the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department Inmate Reception Center on $1,050,000 bail.

Anyone with information regarding the dorm room sexual assault of a UCLA student is urged to contact the UCLA Police Department at (310) 825-1491 or via the Anonymous Tip Hotline at (310) 794- 5824.

UCLA Students ‘On Edge’ After Campus Sexual Assault

Security was increased on campus Friday night, but NBC News spoke with a number of UCLA students who expressed concern over safety.

A lot of bruins are upset at the university, like, they say they’re here to protect us, but where’s the protection?” student Chantal de la Cruz, who lives in the UCLA Saxon Suites dorms, told NBC.

Other students are putting in like our group forums, you know, what’s happening and to stay safe, look out for each other,” De la Cruz added.

NBC described UCLA student sentiment towards campus safety as being “on edge.”

It’s awful, it’s scary, like, what I just heard was that someone got in someone’s window and then just whatever, but it’s terrible that that sort of thing can happen at a school,” Sophie Waldie, a student living in the UCLA dorms, said to NBC.

Chantal de la Cruz added that many UCLA students had begun closing their windows at night following reports of the campus sexual assault.
