BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – University of Colorado police are investigating a possible sexual assault on the Boulder campus on Saturday.

The incident occurred just after midnight. A woman says she got separated from her friends near the Center for Community office on campus when three males started walking next to her. She said the next thing she remembers is waking up half naked.

Two women found the victim and helped take her back to her dorm.

The incident has students on alert at CU after campus police sent out emails and texts with a warning.

“I walk to work by myself and everything. It definitely makes me keep my eyes open,” freshman Jesyca Lazo said.

Cmdr. Robert Axmacher with campus police said they’re investigating all possibilities.

“We have no indication that (drugs) were involved,” Axmacher said.

It’s still not known if it was a sex assault, but freshman Liz Brown is taking precautions.

“I’m always with a friend at all times. I always have my phone on me, make sure it’s charged. Just try to be smarter on who I’m with and where I’m at,” Brown said.

The campus also offers an escort service for students called Night Ride.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call CU police.
