To the Yale Community:

I write to let you know that the Yale Police received an anonymous report today that a second Yale student was the victim of a sexual assault by an acquaintance, who is also a Yale student, which occurred on February 8, 2014 at the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity house located at 31 High Street. A report I sent earlier this week regarding a sexual assault at the same location occurred on the same date as this report, February 8, not February 2, as originally reported.

If you have been the victim of such an incident or you have knowledge of it, please call the Yale Police at 203-432-4400.  We will investigate and will also provide referrals to other resources, such as the Sexual Harassment and Assault Response & Education Center (the SHARE Center), the Title IX Coordinator, the University-Wide Committee, Yale University Health Services, and victims’ advocacy services.

As a reminder, the SHARE Center provides strategies for building a safer community as well as counseling, information, and advocacy information, advocacy, and support for on behalf of survivors of sexual violence, and those dealing with rape, sexual assault, sexual harassment, stalking, or intimate partner violence.  Yale’s SHARE Center can be reached by calling 203-432-2000.  Their website, http://sharecenter.yale.edu offers a range of resources including bystander awareness information.
