Saanich police are reportedly investigating a report of a sexual assault against a student on the University of Victoria’s campus. After the assault was reported to campus security, UVic issued a safety alert that included information about the assault as well as how to access related supports. Police were called to the scene of the incident, which occurred in the campus’s Commonwealth Village Cluster neighbourhood. “While the investigation is still early, we believe that the survivor and the suspect did not know one another,” stated a Saanich police spokesperson. “This is a very sensitive file and we are working closely with the survivor by providing support.” UVic| Times Colonist| Saanich News| CTV News Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
