Sexual assault reported

| Tuesday, April 8, 2014

Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) sent an email to students Tuesday evening alerting them of a report of sexual assault committed by an acquaintance in a North Quad men’s residence hall early Saturday morning.

The email stated the report was made to a University administrator and warned students of the risk of sexual assault.

“Sexual assault can happen to anyone,” the email stated. ” On college campuses, perpetrators are more likely to assault an acquaintance than a stranger.  Being aware of your own safety and watching out for your friends are important steps you can take to reduce the risk of sexual assault.

“Being aware of your own safety and watching out for your friends are important steps you can take to reduce the risk of sexual assault.

“The perpetrator, not the survivor, is responsible for any instance of sexual assault.  Nothing a survivor does or does not do is an excuse for sexual assault.”
