RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina State University police said Friday that they plan to ramp up security over the next two weeks. The move comes in the wake of a sexual assault on campus early Thursday.
According to WRAL, campus police sent a notice to students they would increase patrols near D.H. Hill Library on the main campus and the James Hunt Library on Centennial Campus, which have extended overnight hours during final exams.
The increased patrols, as well as uniformed security overnight for the Brickyard and the pedestrian tunnels on the main campus, will continue until May 9, according to the report.
A female student reported being attacked on the north side of the Free Expression Tunnel at about 4 a.m. Thursday. She said she was walking from the D.H. Hill Library when a man pushed her from behind into some bushes and sexually assaulted her.
