University of Utah reports sexual assault on campus

SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah late Saturday warned its campus community of a sexual assault that was reported earlier that day.

The assault reportedly took place between 4 and 5 p.m. on the 400 block of S. Mario Capecchi Drive, according to a university alert. It happened in a vehicle “described as a dark color, late model car.”

“There was a weapon present in the vehicle,” the alert says, “but it was not used in the commission of the act.”

The university described a “person of interest” as a male with a slim build and shaved head wearing a military uniform. It asks anyone with information to contact university police at 801-585-2677.

The campus alert also lists safety resources and tips for the campus community. University of Utah students who are victims of interpersonal violence can call the LINK line at 1-800-897-5465.

“Additional support and resources are available at the SafeU website, through the SafeUT app, and through the U’s Basic Needs Center,” the alert says.
