A male student and a female student had attended a party earlier in the evening and ended up inside the dorm room together, the San Francisco Chronicle reported, citing infornation from police.

According to police, the woman told the suspect “she did not want to have sex,” but he allegedly sexually assaulted her about 1:30 a.m.

Authorities reportedly withheld the report from the public because they did not want to jeopardize their investigation.
