Student Retracts Sexual Assault Claim




On Wednesday, Sept. 30, at 5:51 p.m., members of the Fordham community received an update on the sexual assault report they had been informed of the previous Sunday, Sept. 27, via a Public Safety announcement.

According to the email, “the NYPD’s Bronx Special Victims Unit conducted a thorough investigation with the cooperation of Fordham’s Department of Public Safety, including the collection of video and physical evidence, and determined that the alleged assault had not taken place.”

The student informed Public Safety on Wednesday that in fact that assault did not occur and investigations on the incident have been subsequently closed.
