AUSTIN (KXAN) — The Austin Police Department is investigating a sexual assault that officers say happened at an off campus party early Sunday morning.

The incident happened at 2 a.m. according to a notification sent to students by University of Texas police.

There is some discrepancy about exactly where this off campus party took place. KXAN has reached back out to police for confirmation. Until police respond, we have decided to take out the exact address included in the alert to students.

A woman told Austin police she was sexually assaulted at a party. Officers who responded did not know at the time if the victim was a UT student.

It is unclear at this stage if anyone has been arrested in connection with the incident.

APD is actively investigating the incident. Anyone with information should call police at 512-974-2000.

The University of Texas sent this statement to KXAN regarding the investigation:

We are currently focused on the welfare of our campus community. During difficult situations, UT’s Student Emergency Services provides students with support including referrals to relevant campus and community resources. We are currently in the fact-finding stage. Any policy violations will be referred to the appropriate University office for investigation.
