SDSU Police Investigating Sexual Assault Incident on Campus

This is the second sexual assault reported on campus in the moth of October

Campus police are investigating a sexual assault incident at San Diego State University which comes on the heels of another reported incident this month.

The alleged incident occurred around 3:50 a.m. Sunday at an off-campus apartment on 55th Street, according to investigators.

There was no threat to the campus community, according to an SDSU spokesperson.

"No alert has been sent to the campus community as this case involves a suspect who has been identified and there was no perceived danger to our campus community," the spokesperson wrote in an email.

This is the second sexual assault reported on campus in the month of October. The campus crime report shows on Oct. 7, a woman reported her friend was sexually assaulted at the Delta Upsilon house on Hardy Avenue.

NBC 7 reached out to the fraternity Monday evening and is awaiting a reply.

Erik Sanchez, a member of a different fraternity, said the crimes are disheartening to hear.

He told NBC 7, the Greek Council tries to educate its members on proper social conduct on and off campus.

"New members are educated on the dos and don'ts of party etiquette which could include that. It’s not just in parties but how to deal with it," Sanchez said.

Nana Dwumfouh, who visits her friend on 55th Street--where the most recent alleged assault was reported--said she often leaves early in the morning.

The reported incident, she said, was somewhat of an eye-opener.

"I feel like we’re in this bubble where we feel like we're untouchable but there's probably a lot of things that happen to students here that I have no idea about," Dwumfouh said.

"I was in a similar situation and I hope everything goes well for her and that she's able to find peace within herself," said Wendy De Leon, who lives nearby.

No other information was available.
