University students want more information on sexual assaults

Salt Lake City • A University of Utah student leader wants the school to improve its communication with its student body, particularly regarding investigations into two recent sexual assaults.

KUTV reports Student Senate Chair Kaitlin McLean says she doesn’t think every student feels safe right now following a sexual assault on campus Saturday and another on March 26.

McLean praised the university's efforts to send alerts on sexual assaults and would like to see continued information-sharing.

University of Utah Police Lt. Brian Wahlin says investigators are working hard to find the suspect in the Saturday assault.

University police released surveillance photos of a dark-colored Toyota Tacoma truck that was driven by the suspect.

The department also has been working on the March 26 case but has not released much information.

No one has been charged or arrested in either case.
