At 6:42 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 22, the University of Wyoming Police Department responded to a complaint of a sexual assault in the vicinity of the UW apartments near 30th Street and Willett Drive. A juvenile female was approached by a juvenile male, who is alleged to have sexually assaulted her. The suspect has been identified, and steps have been taken to ensure there is no threat to the community. Neither juvenile is a UW student.

The matter has been referred to the Albany County Attorney’s Office for action.
