A female student has reported sexual assault at Wilkins Hall. 

On Sept. 3, the suspect assaulted the student after persuading her to come to his room. ISU Police said that prior to the assault, the students had only communicated through social media. 

ISU PD also said the suspect "remained persistent" in his communications with the victim until she agreed to meet him in person. 

ISU PD said no further information can be given at this time. The names of the suspect and victim are also unavailable at this time. 

The crime alert also provided resources for rape and sexual assault providers, and encouraged students to reach out to the Title IX office and Student Counseling Services for confidential advising.
