Police: Sexual assault reported on NCSU campus did not happen

Posted September 12, 2014

An alleged sexual assault that was reported early Friday by a student at North Carolina State University did not happen, according to campus police.

— North Carolina State University police said that a sexual assault reported early Friday did not occur.

The university sent a WolfAlert message to students early Friday after a female student said she was pulled into a van and sexually assaulted by three men near the intersection of Hillsborough Street and Dan Allen Drive.

The report was false, police said, and there is no threat to the campus.

No other information about the false report has been released.

    First of all, as a black male born and raised in America, there's no such thing as an African American unless you're from Africa and become an American citizen! Second, our skin color is a visual thing so I'm totally for telling us what color someone is because it's descriptive! If someone was at my door, I want the neighbors to describe them-whether they were black or white, short or tall, slim or big, etc! It doesn't bother me in the list nor does it make anyone racist just for describing someone's color! Stop being so sensitive!

    Wasting resources and making it harder for other victims to come forward.

    Any accusation as serious as sexual assault (there also would have been kidnapping charges if anyone really put her in a van) should not be in the hands of any "honor court" or the hands of the university at all. It is a police matter, not a matter of frat parties and social calendars. These university reporting systems throw people out of school without forensic evidence or any proven criminal investigative procedures. If a woman is serious about being raped, she better be serious enough to see it through the full legal and investigative challenges of the criminal court system.

    Charge her with reporting false reports. Resources were used, she should pay them back.

    This girl should face false report charges, in my opinion.

    It's not. But I think it is racist to not report the race of perpetrators if they are of one race and then to report it if they are another. I'm not sure why or how WRAL has developed this policy of not reporting race for certain individuals, but it is counter productive. It generates animosity.

    Take a look at the mugging reports in Cary last night. Race was reported to police. WRAL reported other descriptions and excluded race. What is the end game? What is the purpose?
