GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) ECU confirms the report of a sexual assault in Tyler Hall.

According to police, the assault occurred sometime overnight between August 14 and August 15.

The two individuals involved only knew each other for a few hours before the alleged assault.

The university released a warning on Saturday to promote awareness and safety on campus:

“Rape and sexual assault are never the fault of the survivor. It is the behavior of the perpetrator that is wrong. As a reminder, if you start to feel concerns about a person or a situation, trust your feelings and try to remove yourself from the potential threat, even if it is someone whom you know.”
