Posted: Updated:

A Portland State University student accused of trying to sexually harass a classmate is back behind bars after violating the terms of his release. 

Multnomah County deputies arrested Akrew Elrajoubi for a release violation on Thursday afternoon. He was originally arrested last week. According to officials at Portland State, Elrajoubi tried to pull a female student into a women's restroom on campus and touch her inappropriately.  Before making his first court appearance, he claimed the woman was lying and entered a not guilty plea to attempted sex abuse charges.

According to Multnomah County authorities, Elrajoubi violated the terms of his release and was found in an area he was supposed to avoid. He is now back in custody.
