Eugene police are looking for a man who sexually abused a high school student outside of Autzen Stadium during a University of Oregon football game.
The University's Department of Public Safety said it happened Saturday at 8:30 p.m. as the Ducks were taking on the Arizona Wildcats.
"Its disheartening," said student Zachary Rayman. "Especially because I know first hand how great the environment at Autzen is. It's beyond words, it is so much fun."
The girl, who is from Eugene, reported that the man called out to her in a friendly way in the parking lot as she was leaving the game early. He then approached her and forced her to walk to a secluded spot between parked vehicles.
Investigators said he then forced her into inappropriate sexual contact.
"There's a lot of families around, lots of children especially, with such a public environment I don't know how this could happen," said student Emily Angulo.
Because the suspect is also accused of moving the girl without her consent, investigators said he is also wanted for kidnapping.
"I just think because this happened, maybe less people will want to tailgate," said Angulo.
He is described as 5'7" tall with a slight build, clean shaven with short black and gray hair. He was wearing a dark University of Oregon hooded sweatshirt, tan shorts and gray and orange Nike shoes.
He was carrying a beer bottle and smokeless tobacco, but did not appear to be intoxicated.
The suspect is believed to be 35 to 40 years old.
If you know anything about this case, call Eugene Police at 541-682-5111 or the University's Department of Public Safety at 541-346-2919.
