Alleged Sex Assault in Drexel Dorm

Students who live at Drexel University's Calhoun Hall say they woke Saturday morning to police and crime scene investigators roaming the halls and taking pictures on the 3rd floor of the college dorm.

Philadelphia police say they were called to the campus after a student at another area university reported being sexually assaulted on the campus.

Police and university officials won’t say where the alleged assault occurred but multiple sources say it was reported to have happened inside Calhoun Hall before dawn on Saturday morning.

Police say because the case is in the early stages and they can’t say much about it.
