The Ohio University Police Department issued a crime alert after a male student reported on Tuesday around 5 p.m. that he was sexually assaulted at an unknown location, possibly on campus, sometime between 11 p.m. on Monday and 2 a.m. on Tuesday. 

The victim reported that on Monday evening he was at a party at an off-campus house where he was served several drinks in open containers. He reported blacking out and being held down on the floor of a small room by one white male while a second white male sexually assaulted him. The victim again reported blacking out and next remembers being at his residence hall on campus. He was treated and released from O'Bleness Memorial Hospital.

The suspects are described as two college-age white males with muscular builds. One of the suspects has brown hair.
