Auburn investigating report of on-campus sexual assault


Auburn University is investigating allegations of an on-campus sexual assault, but says limited details are currently available for release. Neither the victim nor friend has actually come forward, according the officials.

The University's Public Safety and Security was notified of the assault by a parent of a "third party".

The parent reported that the sexual assault happened several weeks ago and took place at a university fraternity. The exact fraternity in question has not been identified.

Auburn University sent a notification to all students Friday notifying them of the situation. In the email notice, the university said the victim may have been drugged.

The email also reminded students that sexual assault and giving someone a drug without their knowledge are both felonies and that anyone with information on the crime is urged to call police immediately.
