Sexual assault reported in residence hall

A sexual assault reportedly occurred in a southeast residence hall this past Saturday, according to a UW-Madison Crime Alert.

According to the crime alert issued early Wednesday morning, the victim and the offender knew each other. The incident was reported to UW-Madison, not law enforcement, and therefore there is currently no ongoing police investigation.

The Crime Alert, sent to members of the UW-Madison community, said that sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. The alert highlighted the importance of clear consent and warned that sex offenders often target people by using alcohol to intoxicate them.
