A sexual assault was reported early on Sunday, March 26, near the University of Denver campus.

Someone was groped “behind ZBT,” according to the university, referring to the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity building at 1959 South Columbine Street.

To be clear, there has been no indication that the assault actually occurred on ZBT property or had any relation to the fraternity besides its proximity. Further details in the case have not yet been released.

The university’s Campus Safety unit urged people early on Sunday to travel in groups and remain in well-lit areas. Suspicious activity can be called in at 303-871-3000.
