A former Erie Community College South student has been accused of sexually abusing a female student in a stairwell at the school earlier this month.

Marquel T. Foster, 18, of the 600 block of LaSalle Avenue, was charged with sexual abuse, public lewdness, forcible touching and harassment of the woman after she had entered Building 3 at 12:40 p.m. Nov. 8, according to Hamburg police.

The woman was able to get away from Foster, who later admitted to police he grabbed her, authorities said. Foster’s case is now pending in Hamburg Town Court.

College officials Tuesday said Foster is no longer at the college and that the students had known each other.
