Two rapes reported
Observer Staff Report | Wednesday, February 8, 2017
Two rapes were reported to campus administrators Tuesday according to Wednesday’s Notre Dame Security Police (NDSP) crime log.
One of the alleged rapes occurred Friday in a “East side women’s residence hall”; the other allegedly occurred Sept. 24 in a “Northwest men’s residence hall.”
As of press time, students have not received an email alert from NDSP regarding either report. An email seeking comment from University spokesperson Dennis Brown seeking clarification as to why students had not received an email notification had not been returned. The Clery Act requires universities to issue “timely warnings” if certain crimes are brought to their attention, including all legally defined sex offenses. However, the Clery Act does not define “timely.”
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).
