Possible Sexual Assault Reported To PSU Police
A possible sexual assault in an East Halls residence hall was reported to Penn State Police at about noon today.
According to a PSU Alert, a female student told police that a male she knew may have drugged and sexually assaulted her in an East Halls dorm room on Jan. 30 between midnight and 11 a.m. The PSU alert was sent out at 1:47 p.m. today.

This is the sixth reported sexual assault against a woman at University Park so far this semester. Recently, President Barron accepted the 18 recommendations provided by the Sexual Assault Task Force, which he expects will make Penn State a model for sexual assault prevention, and includes provisions to transform the sexual assault investigation process from a hearing model to an investigative one.
