Officials at Stonehill College are reassuring the community after another reported case of rape on campus.

On Monday, January 20, a female student reported to Campus Police that she had been sexually assaulted on campus in early December by a male student.

In this case, the victim knew the alleged perpetrator, so there is no "suspect at-large".

Stonehill officials tell us this incident is not connected to an earlier case from November 23, in which a female reported being raped in a dorm. That investigation is still ongoing with Stonehill and Easton Police, who are following up on leads.

The College spokesman says they are focused on the well-being of students and want to respect their privacy while they assess the situation.
