The University reported Sunday night that a male entered a female student’s room and attempted to get into bed with the student in Randolph residence hall on East Campus.
The incident occurred at approximately 4 a.m. Sunday morning and was reported to Student Affairs later in the day. According to a DukeALERT sent out via email and text late Sunday night, the male suspect left after she and her roommate screamed.
The DukeALERT was sent out almost 20 hours after the incident occurred, in accordance with the Clery Act. The student refused to speak to the Duke University Police Department, the alert said.
"The incident was not reported until late in the day and the student refuses to speak to the police. Based on what we know, a timely warning is required," said Michael Schoenfeld, vice president for public affairs and government relations.
