Alerts and Crime Notices

Crime Notice - Sexual Assault
Sunday, May 3
On Sunday, May 3, 2015, UW-Stout Police Department took a report of a sexual assault from a student who lives in a south campus residence hall. The incident occurred at approximately 3:00am in the student?s room. A suspect has not yet been identified, but it appears as if the victim met the alleged offender in the hours just prior to the incident. There were no signs of forced entry to the residence hall or to the room. UW-Stout Police are investigating the incident. Keep in mind that sexual assault is never the fault of the victim. While there are no failsafe measures, here are some suggestions you may want to use to keep yourself safe. These are general safety tips to increase your personal safety, and the safety of others, and are NOT necessarily related to the recent report: If you have been sexually assaulted, tell someone. There are resources available to you. Make sure you have consent. Consent is a clear and freely given yes, not the absence of a no. People who are incapacitated by alcohol or drugs cannot give consent. Practice being assertive about your boundaries. If saying NO or STOP is too hard, consider creating a diversion so you can leave. Trust your instincts. If you feel uneasy or sense something is wrong, do what you can to get out of that situation or call for assistance. Be active in supporting a safe and respectful community. If you see others engaging in disrespectful or inappropriate actions, speak up and get involved, or contact someone else to assist. Use and encourage others to have a companion or a safe means of getting home, i.e., a trusted friend, or a taxi.
