Georgetown student assaulted in dorm

By Terri Rupar

A female student at Georgetown University was sexually assaulted in a dormitory on the university’s campus, campus official said Saturday.

The incident occurred about 6 p.m. Friday in Copley Hall, after the woman had left her room and was walking down stairs toward the basement.

A stranger followed her, called to her and grabbed her from behind, according to the campus public safety department.

He pushed her against a wall, placed a hand over her mouth and placed the other inside her shirt, the department said.

The student pushed him and ran out the building’s back door. The assailant, whom she had never seen before, left in an unknown direction, the safety department said.

The matter was under investigation.

Copley Hall, an upperclass residence, faces the main university quadrangle.

Those aged 18-20 are also adults. The person who assualted the young woman at Georgetown University must be arrested. It's unfortunate that she was assualted but people who do this in universities should know that when done in that type of setting, they will be found.
