A female Stonehill student reported to Campus Police that she had been sexually assaulted around 2 a.m. Sunday.
The assault occurred on a walkway near the MacPhaidin Library, according to an email from the College.
The time of the assault was originally reported as being 2:45 a.m., but has since been corrected, Director of Communications and Media Relations Martin McGovern said.
The victim described the assailant as being a male with strawberry-blond hair. The assailant’s identity remains unknown to Campus Police.
A second announcement was made to the Stonehill community via email at 11:37 a.m. Sunday. In the announcement, Vice President for Student Affairs Pauline Dobrowski assured students that acts of sexual assault are intolerable at the College.
The College has sent an email to parents alerting them of the situation, McGovern said.
McGovern confirmed the victim was taken to the hospital after filing the report with Campus Police.
The investigation is active and ongoing, he said.
