IUPUI Crime Notice
Jan. 18, 2018

In compliance with the federal Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, a Crime Notice is being issued for a reported Rape.

REPORTED OFFENSE:   On January 18, 2018 at approximately 1:30 pm the IUPD received a report of a rape. It was reported that the suspect pressured the victim to engage in nonconsensual sexual acts.

REPORTED TIME AND LOCATION OF OFFENSE:   This incident occurred on January 17, 2018 during the early morning hours. The incident occurred at Ball Residence Hall.

SUSPECT:   The suspect's identity is known and was an acquaintance of the victim.

SAFETY TIPS: Sexual assault can happen to anyone. Each member of the IU community shares in the responsibility to create and maintain a safe and respectful environment for all individuals. You can help reduce the risk of sexual assault by watching out for the safety of others. While not all crimes of sexual violence are alike, the following information may be helpful:

  1. Perpetrators of sexual assault are often more likely to assault someone they know, rather than a stranger. The perpetrator, not the survivor, is responsible for any instance of sexual assault.
  2. Consent - Anyone initiating any kind of sexual contact with another person must obtain their consent. Consent is an agreement or permission expressed through affirmative, voluntary words or actions that are mutually understandable to all parties involved. Consent cannot be given by someone who is incapacitated by the use of alcohol and/or drugs.
  3. Personal Safety - Perpetrators often use drugs and/or alcohol to target potential victims. Date rape drugs are tasteless, colorless, odorless, can be ingested in a multitude of forms, and effects are not immediately apparent. Be cautious of any substance you are drinking, eating or inhaling that you have not personally prepared and has not remained in your constant control.
  4. Bystander Intervention - Look out for each other. If one of you cannot be with a group of trusted friends, tell each other where you are going, whom you will be with, when you expect to return, and that you'll contact them if anything changes. If you see someone in trouble, safely intervene or call the police immediately.

Anyone with information on this crime or any other crime is encouraged to call the IU Police Department - Indianapolis at 317-274-7911.

You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
