EAGLE ROCK, Calif. (KTLA) — Police are investigating an alleged sexual assault that happened near Occidental College in Eagle Rock.

Students tell KTLA that they’ve been told nothing by college officials about the incident, which reportedly happened after midnight on Sunday.

The LAPD has confirmed that a sex crimes detective took a report from a female student.

“The victim sought her own medical treatment for a sexual assault…” the report says.

It says the victim was at a party off-campus and “became intoxicated and alleged that she was sexually assaulted by a fellow student while she was at the party.”

Police did not give a location for the alleged assault, but another report says it occurred along Range View Avenue, which runs onto the campus.

The street has private residences and student housing, as well as a fraternity.

Occidental is a private college with an annual tuition around $60,000. President Barack Obama attended Occidental College for two years as an undergrad.
