A forcible sex offense was reported Sunday on the Eastern Kentucky University campus, according to the EKU police.
A woman reported being sexually abused by a person known to her, the agency’s online crime log stated. The offense reportedly occurred at 2:10 a.m. at the Clay Hall dormitory.
The incident was reported to police three hours later, according to online records.
University spokesman Marc Whitt said the victim did not seek treatment at any medical facility.
The university did not send out a campuswide safety alert about this incident.
“The decision to send out an alert is evaluated on a case-by-case basis,” Whitt said via email. “The ultimate deciding factor is overall risk to the university community.”
According to the EKU daily crime long, five forcible sex offenses have been reported to campus police since the start of the academic year.
According to EKU’s annual report on security and fire safety, nine forcible sex offenses were reported on campus in 2011. Ten were reported in 2010, and three were reported in 2009.
A federal law called the Clery Act requires all universities and colleges that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and publicly disclose records about crime on and near campuses.
Whitt said a number of EKU organizations provide sexual crime and relationship violence prevention programs throughout the year, he said.
The EKU Police Department also provides sexual assault and domestic violence prevention programs upon request, including RAD (Rape Aggression Defense Training for Women), Whitt said.
