Woman Reports Sexual Assult

Last updated on Saturday, February 2, 2013

(BLOOMINGTON) - Bloomington Police are investigating a sexual assault that happened to a female early Thursday morning.

Bloomington Police Department Lt. Steve Kellams says the 21-year-old woman reported she met a man while at a bar where she had been drinking.

The interaction with him began as consensual, she told police, but she then
blacked out.

The woman told police that when she became aware of what was happening, she realized she was laying in some shrubbery somewhere in the downtown area.

The man was on top of her, rubbing against her.

She told police she had to push the man off.

Kellams says the woman then reunited with her friends at the bar and she returned to her residence, and called police.

Officers spoke with the victim at her residence and transported her to IU Health Bloomington Hospital where a rape kit was performed.
