FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - University of Arkansas police say they're investigating after a 19-year-old student said she was raped by a man she did not know who entered her campus dormitory in Fayetteville.

Capt. Gary Crain said the woman called early Monday morning to say the sexual assault happened inside a room at Holcombe Hall.

The university alerted students of the incident shortly after the call came in with a text, phone call and email.

Crain said police are conducting interviews and will be reviewing any video that's available.

According to the university's website, Holcombe Hall is a coed dormitory. Campus residence halls require a special fob or key for building entry.

The university says counselors at the campus health center are being made available.
