SUNNYVALE – This past Thursday, December 17, Sunnyvale police have announced the arrest of a 27-year-old man in connection with the rape of a Santa Clara University student.

According to Captain Jeff Hunter with the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety, Sunnyvale Police responded on November 14 to a report of a sexual assault that occurred on November 11.

The victim was an 18-year-old female student from Santa Clara University who had been with friends at a house party near campus late Friday night (Nov. 11). 27-year-old Pedro Madrid of Sunnyvale was also confirmed to have attended the party, according to police.

“Madrid is not a Santa Clara University student or known to the party hosts or attendees,” said Captain Hunter.
