Arkansas Tech reports sexual assault

Posted By on Thu, Nov 17, 2011 at 9:38 AM

I'm thinking this is a post-Penn State product. Arkansas Tech distributed far and wide a news release reporting a sexual assault yesterday in a campus locker room — a man groping inside the pants of another man.

The release:

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (November 16, 2011)—Officers from the Arkansas Tech University Office of Public Safety took two statements regarding an alleged sexual assault on the Russellville campus on Wednesday, Nov. 16.

The alleged assault took place in the men’s locker room at the Hull Physical Education Building. According to statements from the alleged male victim and a male witness filed at 4:25 p.m. Wednesday, the male suspect put his hand down the front of the alleged victim’s pants and groped him.

Arkansas Tech President Dr. Robert C. Brown has requested that the Arkansas Tech Office of Public Safety seek assistance from the Arkansas State Police during its investigation. That request was made at 4:50 p.m. Wednesday and the Arkansas State Police has pledged its assistance.

The investigation is active and officers from the Arkansas Tech Office of Public Safety are searching for the suspect based upon a description provided by the alleged victim and the witness.

Their description states that the suspect is approximately 6-foot-3 with a tattoo on the right side of his neck. Their description also states that the suspect was wearing gray sweats and a gray flat-billed cap at the time of the alleged assault.
