USU issues alert after sexual assault is reported on campus

LOGAN — Utah State University has issued another Code Blue Alert, after a sexual assault was reported on the Logan campus. The warning was sent out Tuesday afternoon to students, faculty and staff.

The alert stated that a sexual assault was reported to have occurred last month in a residence hall on the university. It went onto describe that the case is currently being investigated by the USU Police Department, and anyone with information about the possible crime was asked to call officers.

The warning also instructed that everyone on campus has the responsibility to make the community safe. It listed several suggestions that included reporting anyone who may be speaking and behaving in a disrespectful way. It also advised recipients to make sure they understand consent and always receive it before engaging in sexual activity.

The Code Blue was similar to a warning that was sent out by the school, after a student reported witnessing an alleged sexual assault. The crime had occurred in August at a nearby fraternity house. No arrests have been made.

The alert was sent out a day after two students filed a lawsuit against the school. The two women, who were raped by former Aggie football player Torrey Green, claim the school fostered an environment where sexual assaults were tolerated. Officials at the school have not commented on the case.
