ESU sexual assault


An East Stroudsburg University student reported she was sexually assaulted by another student in her dorm room at 2:30 a.m. Friday.

The incident, which occurred in Laurel Hall, is being investigated by Pennsylvania State Police with the assistance of East Stroudsburg University Police.

It was the second sexual assault reported on campus this month.


A spokesman for the college advised: "We strongly encourage anyone who is the victim of crime or who witnesses a crime or any suspicious activity to report these incidents immediately to the university police. Reporting is a crucial first step, call 911 and report, don't assume someone else will report it."
