NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) — Yale University says two undergraduate students were sexually assaulted at the same weekend party held at a fraternity house located out of campus.

Spokesman William Hathaway said on Saturday that the alleged incident occurred on Feb. 8 and he did not know if anyone has been arrested.

Yale Police Chief Ronnell Higgins issued campus-wide alert Friday, saying his department received an anonymous report that day that an acquaintance assaulted a second student. Police reported the first assault earlier this week.

The alleged assailants are Yale students.

The alleged sexual assaults occurred at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house on High Street.

New Haven police they are not investigating because no victim has come forward.

Still, Yale says these reports are extremely troubling and it is taking the matters seriously and pursuing them actively.
