On Saturday, Feb. 8, 2014, at approximately 0740 an unregistered female guest reported
to Ferrum College Police Officers that she had been sexually assaulted while staying
overnight in a male acquaintance’s room in Clark Hall. The dorm door was unsecured
at the time of the assault. The suspect was identified and removed from campus that
day. Charges are pending, the investigation is ongoing.
This should serve as a reminder to all students that your safety is of utmost importance
to the College, all guests must register with the Police Department, and each student
must make sure his or her door is locked whether the room is occupied or not.
