The University of New Mexico is investigating an alleged sexual assault reported to UNM police. The alleged victim, an 18-year-old female student reported that she had been assaulted by a 19-year-old male student in his dorm room between midnight and 2 a.m. on Friday, July 11 at the Student Residence Center (SRC) apartments on 301 Redondo East, NE.
Subsequently, a friend urged her to go to UNM hospital where they contacted UNM Police. An officer took her to the Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner for further treatment and connected her with Rape Crisis counselors. The University immediately offered Sexual Assault Response Team services to the woman and launched a student code of conduct investigation.
The allegations are currently under investigation by UNMPD, the Office of Equal Opportunity and the Dean of Students. Further details will be released as they are available.
The University of New Mexico does not tolerate or condone this type of alleged behavior and will take all steps necessary to ensure the safety of our faculty, staff and students.
