SACRAMENTO–

A man offered unauthorized shuttle service Sunday to a woman Sacramento State University student according to campus police.

The student was walking away from her car on the top level of one of the school’s parking structures, police said. Around 1 a.m., a man drove by in a dark green van and asked the student if she called for a shuttle. When she told the man that she didn’t require shuttle service, he thanked her and drove away.

Shuttling service at Sacramento State is typically provided by Community Service Officers. They drive carts and have defined clothing and symbols. The man’s van did not have any of these identifiable markings.

The man was described as white, unshaven and in his 20s, according to the Sacramento State Police.

Police ask anyone who sees the suspicious van to call (916) 278-6000.
