The Office of Public Safety has received a report of an alleged sexual assault that may have occurred on the Lasell campus late in the evening of Saturday, October 18. The alleged assault was reported to have taken place in the vicinity of Bancroft House or the Van Winkle Quad area.
We are concerned for the safety of all members of the Lasell College community, and are therefore taking extra precautions and asking that you do the same. For the time being, we have added an additional uniformed officer on all evening shifts. We suggest that you be careful when walking around campus, especially at night. We recommend that you plan to travel in twos or threes, and avoid walking by yourself. Use the campus shuttle when it is in service, and remember that you may contact Campus Police at 617.243.2279 for an escort if you need to walk the campus alone.
An investigation is currently underway. If you have any information that would assist in the investigation of the alleged assault, please contact Campus Police at the number noted above.
