Female reports sexual assault



A female reported a sexual assault at about 2:45 a.m. Thursday, Bloomington Police Department Lt. Steve Kellams said.

Bloomington police continue their investigation in which a 21-year-old woman reported she met a man while at a bar where she had been drinking, Kellams said.

The interaction with him began as consensual, she told police, but she then
blacked out.

Kellams said she told police that when she became aware of what was happening, she realized she was laying in some shrubbery somewhere in the downtown area.

The man was on top of her, rubbing against her.

She told police she had to push the man off.

The woman then reunited with her friends at the bar, Kellams said, and she returned to her residence, where she reported the incident.

Officers spoke with the victim at her residence and transported her to IU Health Bloomington Hospital where a rape kit was performed, Kellams said.
