Earlier in September, a UCF student was charged with raping another student on campus. In a separate, off campus incident, a UCF student was sexually assaulted by a gunman.

UCF Vice President Dr. Maribeth Ehasz issued a statement after the attacks were reported.

“This report, and others recently, remind us that safety must be the top priority for our UCF community,” Ehasz said. “Safety should be at the forefront of our minds wherever we are: on campus or off, at home or traveling. As a community, we must look out for each other at all times.”
