Today, February 16, 2015 a female student reported to the Texas Christian University Police Department that she was sexually assaulted on February 14, 2015 in a campus residence hall by a known acquaintance.

Personal Safety Tips:

If you are sexually assaulted:

Call the police and seek medical attention immediately. Time is critical in such cases. On campus call 817-257-7777 and off campus dial 911.

Medical care and sexual assault exams may be obtained at John Peter Smith Hospital.  TCU Police are available to take you to the hospital, but you can go without the police.

Seek counseling from TCU Mental Health and Counseling Center at 817-257-7863.

Other Safety Tips:

Never drink from an open container that has been out of your possession for any length of time.

If you think you may have been drugged, seek medical attention immediately and contact the police.

Exercise caution when you are with people you do not know.

Be responsible with alcohol. If you are intoxicated, you are less alert and become an easy target for an attacker.
