Texas State University police are investigating the report of a sexual assault on campus.

An incident notification went out Dec. 4 regarding the report, which the University Police Department referred to as “a delayed report of a non-stranger sexual assault that occurred at a university residence complex on December 1.”

The notification states that the victim is a Texas State student and the suspect, who the victim knows, is not a student.

“The University Police Department is actively investigating the incident,” the notification states.

UPD advised students seeking more information on resources, support services and reporting options for sexual assault victims to visit the Safety and Emergency Communications Website or the Student Health Center’s Sexual Assault Resources page.

“Sexual assault is not the fault of the victim. Only a perpetrator can prevent sexual assault,” the notification states. 

In accordance with the Clery Act, UPD also provided information on potential warning signs of sexual offenders, including controlling behaviors, becoming angry when limits regarding physical intimacy are set, ignoring personal limits set by others and disrespecting others who are intoxicated.
