Officers are going door to door at a Western University student residence as they investigate allegations of mass drugging and sexual assaults during the school's orientation week, the police chief in London, Ont. Chief Steve Williams said investigators are trying to gather as much information as they can at Medway-Sydenham Hall after allegations circulated on social media that upwards of 30 women were sexually assaulted at the student residence over the weekend. Before those allegations began circulating, police received formal complaints from four women alleging they were victims of sexual assaults in different residences on campus, Williams said.
Police said Tuesday that they arrested one man, a Western student, in connection with those cases but released him without charges. A gender-based violence shelter in London said it was setting up a safe space at Western to support students on campus. AnnaLise Trudell, manager of education, training and research at Anova, said counsellors would be on campus Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night to provide drop-in support to students, who returned last week.
The series of allegations came as the university confirmed that an year-old student died after being assaulted near campus over the weekend. Police said Gabriel Neil was found seriously injured in the early hours of Saturday morning and died the next day. A year old, Aliyan Ahmed, has been charged with manslaughter. Western said the person charged was not a student. We all deserve to feel safe on campus and we know our community does not right now. Trudell, with the gender-based violence shelter, said Anova has seen a spike in calls to its sexual assault and gender-based violence crisis line in recent days, as well as a slew of private messages on social media.
According to the Student Voices on Sexual Violence, a survey of post-secondary students across the province, one in three Western students surveyed indicated they were sexually assaulted in the 12 months. More than 8, Western students responded to the survey. She said women are very leery of reporting sexual assaults, with some studies suggesting only one in 10 will do so.
Western said it is offering counselling to students and options to victims such as help filing a formal complaint or accessing support services without doing so. Students walk across campus at Western University in London, Ont.
