When I posted about Saint Mary’s welcome back event, the Oasis Dance, last week, the big issue was the potential for noise complaints. Some neighbors even worried about drunk students making their way onto neighborhood streets.
While alcohol certainly became an issue with a few students, the much more serious crime of rape was allegedly committed on the dance floor during the event. A female Saint Mary’s student told police she had been assaulted with a foreign object and was able to give officers her account of what happened and a description of the alleged assaulter. The┬áMoraga Police Department is investigating the crime.
