Before Malzahn was arrested early Monday morning, surveillance video reportedly caught him entering a campus dorm Sunday night. where ASU Police said he allegedly attacked a young woman, inside her dorm room.

The alleged attack at an ASU dorm room came, just two days after Malzahn was bailed out of jail by Gorospe.

Police believe Malzahn and Gorospe were headed to Williams, before Malzahn took Gorospe's vehicle and credit cards, and stopped in several cities. The cities include Chino Valley, Prescott Valley, Phoenix and Clifton.

Investigators said Gorospe could be anywhere within a 400-mile radius. For now, roughly 35 family members and close friends are holding out hope.
