ST. CLOUD -- Police are looking into a sexual assault report on the campus of St. Cloud State University last week.

An alert sent by email to the campus community stated a “victim was approached from behind and forced into the back seat of a car" on Thursday evening. The assault was reported on Monday.

University spokesperson Adam Hammer says “the university communicated to campus once information was available that the incident had occurred within the boundaries of the university.”

Hammer says the incident is currently under investigation by the St. Cloud Police Department.

The alert asks anyone who has been a victim or witness to a crime to call 911, the St. Cloud Police Department or the SCSU public safety department at 320-308-3333. It also encourages anyone feeling threatened or offered a ride by someone they do not know to report it to law enforcement or campus officials.
