what do we know so far, bob? >> reporter: good morning to you, laura and marcus. stanford university's department of public safety reports the rape took place on the east side of campus, sometime after midnight. this would have been early monday morning, about 48 hours ago. law enforcement says the victim and suspect do know each other and circumstances surrounding the attack, it's not clear officers arrested the suspect. the campus police department is reminding students while in the majority of the assaults, one or more people have been drinking or using drugs. that is not an excuse nor a defense for the assault. sexual assaults on campuses is a big issue in this country. a stanford swimmer sexually assaulted an unconscious woman behind a dumpster. the judge in the case was criticized for sentencing turner
to six months in jail. turner was released after three months for good behavior. he is required now to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life. trump rolled back rules governing policy on sexual assaults. for instance, now colleges must have a higher standard of proof when determining if a student is responsible for sexual assault. a move that critics argue favor attackers over accusers. bob redell, "today in the bay." >> one we will continue to follow. thank you, bob. new details. bay area musical heavyweights will lend a helping hand. late last night, via social media, metallica announcing plans to headline a benefit at at&t park on november 9th. >> recent tragic events left us

obstructed justice at the fbi. and in direct violation of the constitution, he's taken money from foreign governments and threatened to shut down news organizations that report the truth. if that isn't a case for impeaching and removing a dangerous president, then what has our government become? i'm tom steyer and, like you, i'm a citizen who knows it's up to us to do something. it's why i'm funding this effort to raise our voices together and demand that elected officials take a stand on impeachment. a republican congress once impeached a president for far less. yet, today, people in congress and his own administration know this president is a clear and present danger who is mentally unstable and armed with nuclear weapons. and they do nothing. join us and tell your member of congress that they have a moral responsibility to stop doing what's political and start doing what's right. our country depends on it.

here. looking at san jose, up to 94 degrees. the old record was 90 and livermore, 91 yesterday. that set a new record high. santa rosa and napa, reaching the low 90s, smashing those old records in oakland yesterday, 92 degrees. also, 92 in half-moon bay. we are going to start to have that cooling trend under way. i know we can't wait for that after that blast of heat. we start out this morning in san francisco at 65 degrees. it's 61 in palo alto and san jose. cooler for the inland valleys and livermore. morgan hill, 55 degrees. right now in half-moon bay, it is 23 degrees cooler than yesterday at this time. well, what happened was we had winds rushing over the hills, then down the hills toward half-moon bay. as it goes downhill, it actually warms. so, yesterday morning, we started with temperatures in the lower 80s there. as we look at the high
