The victim reported that she was brought home to her residence at Graham Hall after attending a party off campus at approximately 3:00am on Saturday, October 25, 2014. The victim then went to bed and fell asleep. She then woke up approximately two hours later with indications she had been sexually battered. The victim did not recall any further details of this reported incident and was not able to describe any potential suspect.
Despite the fact the victim did not wish to pursue a continuing law enforcement investigation and has completed a complaint withdrawal, the UFPD will continue public safety outreach regarding this incident.
The UFPD firmly believes that crime is never the fault of the victim. These general safety tips are provided in an effort to assist members of the UF community.
If you become a victim of crime, please contact law enforcement immediately by calling 9-1-1.

Be sure to lock the doors and windows of your residence.
Do not “prop” open exterior entry doors to your residence.
Do not allow anyone to follow you in your residence as you enter.
