Another sexual assault being investigated at Ole Miss

OXFORD, Miss. -- Ole Miss police are investigating a sexual assault reported Friday morning on campus.

The assault reportedly took place between midnight and 1 a.m. on Poole Drive near Fraternity row.

Last Friday, an assault was reported at the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity house on Chapel Lane around 11 p.m.

ATO has been cooperating with the investigation, police said.

They also pointed out there were people at the event who are not students and not part of the Greek system.

"Both investigations are ongoing. Totally separate cases," said UPD Chief Tim Potts. "One is too many. This coming from a father of a sophomore in college. You hate these type of events to take place."

Potts said there is no reason to believe the events are connected.

"Two in a span of one week is certainly alarming. Like I said, one is too many," said Potts.
