BOULDER, Colo. (CBS4) – The University of Colorado Boulder Police Department is investigating after a sexual assault was reported in a residence hall.
According to police, the sexual assault occurred in a room at Williams Village early Sunday morning.
“A female CU-Boulder student reported to police she may have been sexually assaulted while attending a party at Williams Village the evening prior,” police said in a statement. “The female was able to provide possible information about the identity of the male.”
Campus Police says with the victim’s help they’ve been able to identify a possible suspect yet their investigation continues.
“I think people will be more cautious about who they let into the building,” said student Katie Cunliffe.
University staff sent out an alert to students about the incident providing some comfort to those who live close to where it happened.
“I’m sort of made more comfortable that they tell us about it,” said Cunliffe.
