A 28-year-old man pleaded no contest today to assaulting two women at California State University, Northridge in 2018, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office announced.

Deputy District Attorney Myle Phan said Peter Wei of Northridge entered the plea to two felony counts of sexual battery by restraint in case PA091930.

Wei immediately was sentenced to five years of probation, five years state prison suspended, ordered to complete a year in a residential mental health program, wear a GPS monitoring device for a year and register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

The suspended sentence may be imposed if the defendant violates the terms of his probation.

Wei assaulted two separate women by grabbing them and attempting to put them in a chokehold on Nov. 27 and 28, 2018, the prosecutor said. Both women managed to escape to safety during the attacks, the prosecutor added.

The case was investigated by the Cal State Northridge Department of Police Services.
