Sexual assault report under investigation

July 26, 2010 -- Officers at Arkansas State University’s police department continue to investigate reports of an alleged sexual assault on campus during the early Monday morning hours. University officials say there is “absolutely no connection” to similar occurrences earlier this year.

“There is no indication that there is a connection between this particular incident and the others,” said Randy Martin, interim chief of the University Police Department (UPD)“The victim in this incident gave us information about the suspect, and we located him. After meeting with the prosecuting attorney and conducting interviews, we are not able to make an arrest at this time.”

Martin also said that he and his department are continuing the investigation and conducting interviews.

At approximately 2:10 a.m. on Monday, July 26, a sexual assault was reported to the ASU police. The incident occurred at a residence in the North Park Quad area on the northeast side of campus.  Alerts were issued through the campus emergency alert system, including an alert describing the suspect as “a blonde white male” who had been located by University Police. 

University Police encourages campus constituents to remain alert to their surroundings and ask that anyone with information regarding this incident, report to UPD immediately at 870-972-2093.
