On September 20, 2012, we informed the Pepperdine community about an incident regarding a man who groped a female student near the Terrace Parking Lot on the Malibu campus. This individual was later identified as Isaac Yasharal. Yasharal has no affiliation with Pepperdine and was taken into custody by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department. We have learned that Yasharal has now been released.
Yasharal was warned that he is prohibited from coming onto campus, and Public Safety is watching for him. He should be considered dangerous. If he is observed on campus, call 911 immediately, then call the Department of Public Safety at (310) 506-4441 (or extension 4441 on campus). An important aspect of community safety is all members remaining vigilant and looking out for one another.
