Student sexually assaulted on campus


Police are investigating reports of a serious sexual assault on a 20 year old female student on campus.

Police say the incident took place in the early hours of Sunday morning (9 December) in Hilary place.

Parts of the street, including a passage behind the popular club venue Halo were sealed off until Monday afternoon.

A police spokesperson added that enquiries were on-going, however both the University and Halo did not wish to comment on the incident.

This news comes as two separate cases of indecent assault were reported on campus last week. Both incidents took place in the Union. There is no suggestion that the incidents are linked.

Anyone with information in relation to the incident should contact West Yorkshire Police via 101 or call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
