Multiple sexual assaults reported at UCA

CONWAY, AR (KAIT) - Students at the University of Central Arkansas are on edge after news of a third sexual assault allegation spreads on campus.

According to KARK-TV, a judge refused to hold a suspect in the first case because of a lack of evidence. Police have not identified a suspect in the second case.

In the third case, reported on Tuesday, the victim told police the sexual assault was committed by an acquaintance.

In two of the cases, UCA sent a campus-wide alert. For the third, the school did not.

UCA Spokeswoman Christina Madsen told KARK-TV they follow the Clery Act. It requires timely warnings in sexual assault cases the school deems serious or a continuing threat.
