A sexual assault occurred near Loyola’s Lake Shore Campus Friday.

Between approximately midnight and 2:30 a.m. on Friday, Feb. 2, an 18-year-old female was the victim of a criminal sexual assault in the 6400 block of N. Sheridan Road.

It wasn’t immediately clear if either the victim or the offender were Loyola students, but Campus Safety Sgt. Tim Cunningham said the incident was being dealt with by Loyola’s Title IX office, which is in charge of handling allegations of sexual assault involving Loyola students and provides resources for survivors of gender-based crimes.

Cunningham declined to offer any additional information about the incident, and Loyola’s Title IX office couldn’t be reached for comment.

CPD Officer Jose Jara said the offender was unknown and detectives are investigating the incident.
