A Loyola student reported a sexual assault early Friday morning in the stairwell of the Freret Garage on Loyola's main campus.
The incident was reported at 4:12 a.m. on Feb. 15. An arrest has not yet been made and the names of the victim and the suspect have not yet been released to the public.
According to a statement from NOPD officer Hilal Williams, the victim knew the suspect prior to the incident.
"This was not a random attack," Williams said in a statement. "The victim said she was consuming alcoholic beverages at a bar when she met the alleged suspect and began dancing with him during the night."
Williams also said that the victim reported to police that she allowed the suspect to walk her home before the incident took place.
Williams said later in the statement that the suspect has been identified and that NOPD is still looking into the incident.
"Detectives have been in contact with the suspect and will be meeting with him at a scheduled time," he said "This is an on-going investigation."
Loyola sent out a BOLO email about the incident later Friday night. Campus police are encouraging all students to be aware of their surroundings and to closely monitor their alcohol intake to help avoid similar situations.
