UIPD Issues Crime Alert

Trigger Warning: This warning addresses a report of sexual misconduct. Resources are available on and off campus to provide assistance. Contact RVAP for 24/7 support at (319) 335-6000.
 
This information is being released in accordance with the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act. The Clery Act requires all colleges and universities that participate in federal financial aid programs to keep and disclose information about crime on and near their respective campuses, including timely warnings of crimes that may represent a threat to the safety of students or employees.

On Saturday, September 13, 2014 at the Iowa State v. Iowa football game a non-student reported to University of Iowa Police she was touched inappropriately while she was in section 106-107 of Kinnick Stadium. The suspect is described as a white college-aged male with dark blonde hair and wearing a red shirt. If you have more information about this crime please contact the UI Police Division at (319)335-5022.
 
On Monday, September 15, 2014 University of Iowa Police received a report from a student that she was sexually assaulted by an acquaintance in a residence hall in the early morning hours of Sunday morning, September 14, 2014.    

The only person responsible for sexual misconduct is the perpetrator. It is a violation of university policy to engage in sexual activities without affirmative consent from your partner. Someone incapacitated due to alcohol or drugs cannot consent to sexual activity. This is reflected in university policy: http://dos.uiowa.edu/assistance/consent/. A university student or employee in violation of sexual misconduct policies faces sanctions up to and including expulsion or termination.

It is estimated that nationwide 20 percent of women and six percent of men experience sexual assault or attempted sexual assault during their college years. Data reveal nearly 50 percent of transgender people experience sexual violence. No matter the demographic, the most common type of sexual assault is not committed by a stranger but by someone known to the victim, typically a date or other acquaintance.

If you feel uneasy about a situation, trust your instincts and attempt to interrupt the chain of events. Create a distraction and involve others. Make a commitment to ensure everyone has a safe way home. Being an active bystander doesn't require you put yourself at risk. If you believe a crime has been committed we encourage you to call the police  911. To contact University of Iowa Police call (319) 335-5022. More information is available here: http://www.rainn.org/get-information/sexual-assault-prevention.

We strongly encourage victims to seek medical attention immediately, even if there are no obvious physical injuries. Receiving a sexual assault examination is free and conducted by a specially trained nurse. An examination does not obligate someone to any kind of investigation; however, it allows evidence to be collected and preserved in the event you choose to authorize a criminal investigation at a later time.


In addition to seeking medical attention, there are other options for self-care after an assault, including contacting a confidential victim advocate (24/7 support at 319-335-6000). More information about options is provided here: http://osmrc.uiowa.edu/.
