Sexual assault reported at Briscoe Residence Hall

The IU Police Department received a report of a sexual assault at 11:21 a.m. Wednesday.

The person reporting the incident told police they were assaulted by an unidentified suspect they met at a party Saturday night. The suspect allegedly went with the individual to their room in Briscoe Residence Hall sometime between 12:40 and 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning when the assault took place.

IU sent a crime notice about the incident to all students in compliance with the Clery Act, which requires universities that receive federal funding to report campus crime data, outline campus safety policies and support victims of violence.

The IUPD also received two separate reports of sexual assault Monday, one of which allegedly took place at Read residence center and the other at Wright Quad. Both alleged sexual assaults occurred Sunday night, and both cases are still open. The department did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

IU encourages anyone with information about these incidents to call IUPD at 812-855-411 or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.
