Security Alerts

In Compliance with the "Timely Warning" provisions of the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1998 the University Police is giving notice of the following reported incident:


4/13/2017

On 4/13/2017, the University Police Department was contacted by another law enforcement agency in reference to a possible sexual assault on our campus on 4/12/2017. 

UPD responded to the information provided and met with a female, not associated with the university, who advised she was attending a KFDI concert at Koch Arena. At one point, she returned to her vehicle parked in a lot by the 1970 football memorial. She said she was approached by two unknown males who pushed her to the ground near the memorial and sexually assaulted her.

The alleged victim and her male companion were interviewed by University Police around 9:00 pm on 4/12/2017, after a passerby reported an altercation. They both told police they were a couple just having an argument and nothing was wrong. Officers saw no sign of injury to either person. The alleged assault, according to a friend, had occurred prior to the police contact at 9:00 pm. The incident was reported to Haysville Police this morning by a friend of the female.

Under normal circumstances, this notice would have been issued sooner, unfortunately, there were delays in this case because the crime report came through a third party and University Police had to locate and interview the out-of-state resident, who was the reported victim.

UPD is sharing these descriptions of the two alleged suspects in hopes that someone may have additional information and come forward.

This reported crime happened near a busy parking lot. Although crimes like this happen most often in secluded areas away from witnesses, this is a reminder that crime can occur at any place and at any time.  Walking in groups, carrying electronic devices hidden in book bags or underneath outer clothing, and remaining alert and observant of your immediate environment may reduce risk of being victimized by an offender.
