Police have evacuated Pima Community College West Campus in relation to an earlier report from a female about being grabbed by a man in the parking lot. 

Since authorities did not find the suspect on an initial sweep of the campus they are taking an abundance of caution in case the man is still on campus, according to Lisa Brosky with PCC.

The school is closed for the remainder of the day and will reopen for classes and business on Friday.

The female reported that a tall black male tried forcing her into a gray vehicle. 

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20's with corn rows. He was last seen wearing a black shirt with white shorts.

His vehicle is described as a small possible 4 door vehicle, gray in color with tinted windows. 

School officials say the incident happened near the south side of the A building.

The information obtained by school officials indicate the victim may be known to the suspect.
