On Feb. 18 an assault was reported at Colonial Hall and involved two students.
It was confirmed by the Owl that the Crete Police Department (CPD) was called to the scene to investigate the incident.
CPD Officer Audrey Arbuckle acknowledged the assault but said that no further details could be shared because it was still an ongoing investigation.
“We are working through the process of getting through prosecution. The only thing I can tell you is that there was an assault that occurred on campus,” Arbuckle said.
Junior Anthony Malone, one of the students involved with the incident, declined to comment about the case at the time of publication.
The Saline County Attorney’s Office was contacted but also declined to comment at the time of publication because of the current status of the case.
