A sexual assault anonymously reported on Wednesday was the latest in a rising number of sex offenses reported to the University of Colorado Boulder Police Department in the last six months.
Since Aug. 2, 2013, six sex offenses have been reported to CUPD, according to the department’s Clery Act archive. One of the six was later determined to be a false report.
From the months of August through the following July of the three years prior, the campus police department logged just one sex offense reported to them per year. CUPD also shared information with students regarding a few offenses that the Boulder Police Department or Boulder County Sheriff’s Office investigated near campus.
