ECU Police Investigating Student Assault

University police are investigating an assault that happened on ECU's campus early Sunday morning.

It happened as the female student was walking in the 10th Street and College Hill Drive area around 3:30 a.m. Police say the two men, who were dressed in Halloween costumes, fondled the woman.

Police say alcohol was involved and they don't have much to go on because the two men were wearing costumes. If you have information on this assault, contact ECU police at 252-328-6787.

    DO NOT WALK AROUND GREENVILLE AFTER DARK UNLESS YOU ARE CARRYING A LOAD GUN WITH YOU READY TO PLUG THE THUGS.

    why would a young woman in her right mind walk down those streets at 3:30 in the morning? Maybe she should have had better sense that to be out in the first place. Don't go walking around in the worst possible time by yourself and maybe this wouldn't happen. I'm sad it happened to her, but next time use your brain.

    Asking for it ?? The only way they can ask for it is to say the words with their mouths. Attitudes such as yours only fuels the fire. When you go to the bank you see lots of money, is the bank asking to be robbed ??

    I have one question for all of you who say she should have known better and girls should not dress a certain way (that they have a stamp asking for it). If you forget to lock your car and you come outside the next morning is it your fault the car was stolen? Where is the outrage for the perpetrators who think it is okay to take something from these women that does not belong to them.

    to J and Yeah and other Neanderthals: if wearing skimpy clothing is "asking for it" then by your definition any man looking at bikini-clad women will go out and inappropriately touch the first female he meets; and gosh what about the men who partake in porn? Maybe a curfew for men would be the answer since we have so little self control.

    Yeah, but if it's not safe (which it isn't) she should have KNOWN that she shouldn't be walking around GREENVILLE of all places at 3:30 in the morning. Another thing that annoys me is when girls get mad that they were touched inappropriately downtown and they are wearing a skimpy costume (with sexual connotation). You are just simply asking for it. Don't get mad when you ask for it.

    ANYONE should be able to walk at ANYTIME and be safe. Sad to say those days are over. This is a different world we live in now. Everyone needs to be aware of that and use good judgement. She made a bad decision but there is no excuse for what happened to her. The low lifes were probably drunk and meant no harm to her. The next time could be way worse. Dont blame her, blame society as a whole.

    No it's not right and this young lady is a victim, however in this situation she placed herself in a position to become a victim. Remember no one is biten by a shark on dry land. When you place yourself in an environment you must be aware of these things. This girl is lucky she wasn't abducted and killed as this happens alot in our society. Unfortunately, the real world requires that people take responsibilty for their own safety. When you give criminals an opportunity, most times they will take it. If your a woman out at 3:30am, you should have some sort of protection and never, ever be alone.
