On Tuesday, November 22, the Ohio University Police Department issued a crime alert regarding a third-party report of a sexual assault that was reported to have occurred between Friday, October 28 and Saturday, October 29 by a suspect who was unknown to the victim. We encourage anyone with additional information about this incident to contact OUPD.

While we cannot comment specifically on this case, it is important to know that preventing sexual violence, and appropriately responding to incidents of sexual violence when they occur, are among Ohio University's highest priorities.

From OHIO’s Survivor Advocacy Program to the Bobcat Safe app and timely campus messages that reinforce the safety, training and notification tools available across campus, we remain committed to providing numerous resources to help keep our campus safe and to support survivors.
