After further investigation, it was determined that the events as described did not occur.

The person who reported the incident advised APSU Police Officers that she was not assaulted by an unknown subject in that area.

The Austin Peay State University Police Department will continue investigating this incident.

I want to remind you of the following security precautions:

Immediately report suspicious persons loitering around university facilities.

If you become the victim of a crime, do not try to physically detain or apprehend the suspect. Report the incident immediately to the APSU Police Department at 911 or 931.221.7786.

Always walk/jog/bike in groups in well-lit and well-traveled areas. If you do not wish to walk alone, you can request an escort from the APSU Police Department.

Scan the area before you exit or approach your vehicle/building and when you proceed between sites.

Have your key/access card ready in hand to quickly access the door of your vehicle/building.

If strangers approach, maintain a distance and be observant. If they are in a vehicle, get the license plate number, if possible.

Lock doors and windows of your room/building. Do not prop open doors or let strangers in.
