U of Illinois police issue letter about sexual assaults

URBANA, Ill. (AP) — Police at the University of Illinois campus in Urbana-Champaign have issued a letter about sexual assaults after three were reported in recent weeks.

The (Champaign) News-Gazette reports ( that university police posted the letter Friday on the department’s blog. The letter focuses on how the campus handles sexual assault reports. Campus police sent out public-safety notices via mass emails to campus on Feb. 6, Feb. 9 and Feb. 12 about three cases of students who’d been assaulted at a residence hall or fraternity house.

UI police spokesman Patrick Wade says sexual-assault reports happen at all times of year but “three reports in eight days is a lot.” Wade says the three reports all involved someone known to the victims and he doesn’t expect charges will be filed.
