Rape reported

| Monday, April 24, 2017

A rape was reported Thursday to a University administrator, according to the Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) crime log for Friday.

The alleged rape occurred April 2 in a Mod Quad men’s residence hall, according to the entry.

Students did not receive an email crime alert from NDSP alerting them that the report had been filed.

“There are a number of factors that come into play when deciding whether to send [an email] or not,” University spokesperson Dennis Brown said in an email. “The timeliness, or lack thereof, is one, but other components in the fact pattern also are taken into account.”

Information about sexual assault prevention and resources for survivors of sexual assault are available online from NDSP and from the Committee for Sexual Assault Prevention (CSAP).
