ECU Police Investigating Campus Sexual Assault

ECU Police are investigating a reported sexual assault inside one of the residence halls.

Assistant Police Chief Dawn Tevepaugh tells WITN the alleged assault occurred Saturday morning between 1:00 a.m. and 3:00 a.m. inside Tyler Hall.

We're told the victim, a woman, is a freshman student and lives on campus, but not in that particular dorm.

Officers say it happened inside a room with a person the victim may have been familiar with.

Right now there is no information on a possible suspect, but officers say they're still investigating the claim. ECU police say alcohol is factor in this case.

University police say it is the first reported sexual assault this school year, and the fifth within the past two years at ECU.
