UNM investigates dorm sexual assault case

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – UNM is investigating claims a student was sexually assaulted in a dorm.

The 18-year-old woman told UNM police she was sexually assaulted by a 19-year-old male student a week ago at the Student Residence Center Apartments.

The university launched an investigation, but couldn’t say if the woman knew her attacker.

UNM says two to four sexual assaults are reported on campus each year.
