Sex assaults worry Castleton campus

Print More

Two reports of sexual assaults on the Castleton State College campus have prompted the Vermont school to increase security patrols and issue an alert urging students, faculty and staff to take extra precautions.

Meanwhile, town police said they are trying to determine if the assaults are related.

Two separate alerts — one prompted by each assault — were posted on campus bulletin boards and walls and e-mailed to members of the college community this past week.

The college is offering escorts for anyone with concerns about safety and is planning a campus-wide forum on Tuesday to discuss safety issues.
