Under the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, or Clery Act, the Indiana University Police Department is required to alert the campus community to certain crimes in a manner that is timely and will aid in the prevention of similar crimes. Indiana University Police Department issues Crime Notices for any Clery Act crime that has occurred within our Clery Act geography where it has been determined that there is a serious or continuing threat to students and employees. Crime Notices are distributed via email and will contain a brief description of the details of the crime and provide the campus community with information on how to protect yourself from similar crimes from happening to you.

Listed here are the Crime Notices issued for the IUPUI campus in the previous 60 days. If you would like to view any older Crime Notices not shown below, please contact the Indiana University Police Department – Indianapolis during normal business hours.

IUPUI Crime Notice: April 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 April 17, 2018 at approximately 8:00 p.m. the IUPD-IUPUI received a third hand report of a rape. On April 18, 2018 at approximately 10:30 a.m. the IUPD received further information regarding the incident. It was reported the suspect, who was known to the victim, engaged in nonconsensual sexual acts with the victim.

TIME AND LOCATION OF OFFENSE: This incident occurred on April 16, 2018 at approximately 7:00 p.m. The incident occurred inside a vehicle in the Blackford Street Garage, located at 725 W. North St.

SUSPECT: The suspect’s identity is unknown to IUPD. The IUPD investigators have confirmed the suspect was known to the victim.

SAFETY TIPS: Sexual assault can happen to anyone. Each member of the IUPUI 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:

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 – IUPUI at 317-274-7911. You may also call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477).
