WOMEN REPORT SEXUAL ASSAULTS
THAT OCCURRED LAST YEAR
SMU police are investigating two unrelated reports made this week concerning sexual assaults, one that occurred off campus in March 2008 and the other at a fraternity house in August 2008.
A student told SMU police she was sexually assaulted at an off-campus location in March 2008. The student said she knew the suspect, who was a student but is no longer affiliated with SMU. He is a white male, 25 years old, 6 feet tall and weighing 185 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.
Another student reported that she was sexually assaulted in August 2008 in a campus fraternity house at 3022 SMU Blvd. The student said she knew the suspect, an SMU student. He is a white male, 20 years old, 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighing 150 lbs with brown hair and blue eyes. He also is a suspect in an October 2008 sexual assault complaint.
Police have identified both suspects and believe there is no connection between these two reports. The filing of criminal charges is pending a full investigation.
Anyone with information about these matters is asked to contact the SMU Police Department at 214-768-3388. Information also may be reported anonymously through the Silent Witness Program by calling 214-SMU-2TIP or online at http://www.smu.edu/2tip
