Suspect Arrested in Attack on Professor


An arrest was made last night, Monday, March 6, in connection with the attack and robbery of a chemistry professor that occurred Feb. 14 on the campus of California State University, Sacramento. The professor was assaulted with a stun gun and robbed by three individuals as he walked to his car in the late evening.

An individual matching the composite drawing of one of the male suspects was noticed by an officer on patrol of campus on Feb. 29 in the vicinity of where the assault occurred. A routine warrants check at that time revealed the suspect had two no-bail warrants out of Sacramento County. He was arrested at that time on the warrants.

The suspect, James Barrett George, 34 of Cool, was subsequently arrested for the campus attack at his residence by El Dorado County Sheriff's deputies on a warrant issued by CSUS Police. The victim and other witnesses have identified George as a suspect in the CSUS robbery and assault case.

Further information is available from Sgt. Joe Green at 278-6851.
