UNR Police Investigate Report of Possible Sexual Assault

Posted: Updated:

University of Nevada Police Services says it is investigating a report about a possible sexual assault that occurred April 1 between 9pm-10pm in the area of 17th & Stadium Way.

Campus police received the information through a third-party on Sunday. The report cites a dark Ford F-150 4-door pickup occupied by four men.

Here are some tips for protecting yourself:
 
*        Make personal safety your number one priority. Awareness, Avoidance and Risk Reduction is the best way to not be a victim.
*        Be alert! Look around you; be aware of who is on the street and in the area. Make it difficult for anyone to take you by surprise.
*        Keep your distance from anyone who triggers a suspicion in your mind. 
*        Stay alert to your surroundings when walking at night. Walk briskly to your destination.
*        Travel in groups of two or more and always travel in well-lit, heavily traveled areas.
*        Carry a whistle or noise maker. This can serve as a reminder to exercise caution, and can alert someone in the area that you need help.
*        If listening to music, keep the volume low so you can hear what is going on around you. 
*        Keep your doors and windows locked at all times. Propping open a locked door or window invites unwanted visitors.
*        Tell someone where you are going and when you will return.
*        If you know you are going to be working late, plan ahead as to how you will get to your vehicle or home safely.
*        Use university services such as Campus Escort or University Police Cadets to get you to your vehicle safely. Campus Escort operates 7 days a week during academic semesters from 7pm – 1am. Police Cadets operate Monday through Thursday from 6pm – 12am during academic semesters. 
*        Immediately report any suspicious activity to University Police Services by calling dispatch at 334-COPS (2677), or 911. You can also call Secret Witness at 775-322-4900 or text your tip to 847411.
