In the interest of campus safety, we want everyone to be aware that...

University of Iowa officials received a report that a male subject entered a room at an east side residence hall during the early morning hours of Aug. 22, 2019 and climbed the sleeping resident's lofted bed, grabbed her ankles and pulled her blankets.
