University of Minnesota police no longer believe student was raped at knifepoint

University of Minnesota police said Thursday that the student who reported being raped by armed strangers in her dorm Sunday was “in crisis” and in need of “professional assistance.”

They no longer believe that she was the victim of an armed sexual assault, as originally reported, according to Vice President Pam Wheelock, who oversees the Police Department.

The case sparked a wave of concern across campus after the student, an 18-year-old woman, told police that she was sexually assaulted early Sunday in her dorm room at Sanford Hall by two strangers, one carrying a knife.

In a brief written statement Thursday, university officials said: “After continued University of Minnesota Police Department investigation, the previously reported sexual assault in Sanford Hall early Sunday morning is now being considered a student crisis intervention case.”

Asked whether the student had changed her story, Wheelock declined to comment, citing confidentiality laws. “Our priority right now is on providing the support to this student that she needs,” she said.
