Sexual assault reported in Ball State residence hall
Ball State sent a campus-wide Public Safety Advisory email at around 4 a.m. Saturday, after a report of a sexual assault in an on-campus residence hall.
According to the email, the assault was reported to have occurred on Saturday.
University Police Department received a campus security authorities (CSA) report of the assault. Federal law requires CSAs to report non-identifying information about the crime, according to The Office of Victim Services. This includes date, location and type of crime.
No further information was included in the email. This is the first Public Safety Advisory email sent to campus on a reported sexual assault this semester.
Last year, four Public Safety Advisory emails about sexual assault reports were sent to campus, including a sexual assault attempt that occurred outside Emens Auditorium in October.
