The Marin County Sheriff's Office is investigating a kidnapping and sexual assault Thursday night that began at the Kentfield campus of the College of Marin.

Sheriff's Sgt. Nina Snyder would not say if the victim was a student or a male or female, but the College of Marin Police Department said the victim was a male.

The victim found a male sitting in the back seat of his car in parking lot 13 around 8:15 p.m. after he left class, the College of Marin said in a campus alert posted today.

The victim said the male suspect had a handgun and forced him to drive off campus to a neighborhood in Tam Valley southern Marin County, Snyder said.

The suspect sexually assaulted the victim at gunpoint, and the victim was able to run away and call for help, Snyder said.

The victim was treated at a local hospital for his injuries, Snyder said.

The suspect is a black male, 6 feet to 6 feet 2 inches, heavy set and around 220-235 pounds, Snyder said.

The sheriff's office and the College of Marin Police Department are investigating the incident.
