— Two recent sexual assaults at Duke University sparked a public outcry on campus.

About 100 students stood in the Chapel quad Wednesday and yelled for five minutes. The act represented the screams suppressed by victims of sexual assault.

Two women were attacked on campus over the weekend.

No one has been arrested in either case.

Some students said officials were slow to notify them. Police officials said everyone was alerted as soon as officers got all the details.
