On Sept. 18, University security officers were again called to the library by an anonymous caller reporting she had just been sexually assaulted. This caller left the library before being interviewed by police. Security located a suspect and police were called. After an investigation the man was charged in connection to the assault on Sept. 15. The incident on Sept. 18 is still under investigation.
