Report: Number of rapes reported at KU went down

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — A new report shows that the number of rapes reported at the University of Kansas went down from 2014 to 2015.

The university’s latest Clery report shows there were 13 reported rapes at the university in 2015, down from 19 reported in 2014.

The new report, which was released Friday, also shows that of the 13 rapes reported at the university in 2015, five occurred in campus housing and five occurred elsewhere on campus. One occurred at a “non-campus” location, and two occurred on public property.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports that fondling reports also went down, from 14 in 2014 to four in 2015.

The federal Clery Act requires postsecondary institutions to track and annually report crime reported on their campuses.
