Police investigate two sexual assaults at student apartment complexes


Investigators are reviewing two reports of sexual assaults of young women this week at apartment complexes populated heavily with university students and other young people.

In the first case, reported about 5:30 p.m. Tuesday, a resident of the Exchange 2 apartments told police that his roommates were partying with a group of acquaintances they met at a downtown bar the previous evening, San Marcos police Sgt. Dave Waugh said.  At some point between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m., one of the visitors entered the complainant’s bedroom and sexually assaulted his 20-year-old girlfriend while she slept.

In an unrelated report, police responded early Thursday morning to a residence in the 100 block of Craddock Avenue for a missing person call. A woman who lived there told police her roommate had not come home from the bars and was not answering her phone.

At about 1:15 a.m., the complainant reached the missing roommate by cell phone and went with the officer to pick her up at the University Heights apartments, 1610 N. Interstate 35. The woman told police she believed she had been sexually assaulted by a man she met at a bar, Waugh said.

Both cases have been referred to detectives for further investigation.
