Two more sexual assaults reported


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Two unrelated sexual assaults were reported Thursday evening, marking the 10th and 11th reported assaults of the 2013-2014 academic year.

One male student reported he was sexually assaulted by an acquaintance on March 28 after the pair met at an off-campus party and returned to a residence hall where the sexual assault occurred.

This is the first male to step forward and report a sexual assault to University of Iowa officials this year.

In an unrelated incident, a female student reported to UI staff that she was a victim of non-consensual contact of a sexual nature by an acquaintance on Jan. 15 in a residence hall.

Prior to these reports, the last sexual assault was reported on March 11.

Chuck Green, the assistant vice president for the UI police, said one of the two students is pursing a criminal investigation, but he would not identify the student further.

The UI police formerly revealed this information in its timely warning. The department decided to remove the information from the warning following feedback in a listening post held by UI President Sally Mason and recommendations made by from a special team formed following protests on the UI campus regarding sexual assault.
