To the Yale Community: 


I write to let you know that a Yale College student reported to police that another Yale student was the victim of a sexual assault that occurred off campus, in the area of Crown and High Streets, at approximately 2:00 AM.  The New Haven Police are investigating.


If you have any information regarding this incident, please call the New Haven Police at (203) 946-6316 or Yale Police at (203) 432-4400 or send an anonymous text tip through our Bulldog Mobile (LiveSafe) app. To register for Bulldog Mobile please visit https://your.yale.edu/community/public-safety/campus-safety-services/bulldog-mobile-livesafe-app.


As always, if you are the victim of, or aware of, any form of sexual assault, police 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 information, advocacy, and support for 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, sharecenter.yale.edu, offers a range of information, including strategies for building a safer community.
