A woman reported that she was forcibly raped at Stanford University this past weekend, the Department of Public Safety said in a crime alert released early Tuesday morning.
The alleged rape is believed to have taken place in an "undisclosed location" on the main campus between Sunday evening, Aug. 19, and Monday morning, Aug. 20.
The woman reported the incident on Monday. Bill Larson, the public information officer for the Department of Public Safety, could not confirm whether the woman is a Stanford student.
He later said that Stanford Hospital notified the Department of Public Safety of the reported assault, as required by law. The woman has chosen to remain anonymous and has not provided a statement, he said.
"At this time, I have no information on the victim," he wrote in an email to the Weekly.
Under the federal Jeanne Clery Act, the university is required to issue a "timely warning" about crimes that pose a serious or ongoing threat to the campus community.
The Department of Public Safety urges anyone with information about the alleged crime to call 650-329-2413.
Stanford is still on summer break; the fall quarter starts for undergraduates on Sept. 24.
