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.”
