Correction | Sept. 14, 7:03 p.m. This story has been updated to reflect that instead of occurring, a rape was simply reported on the Broward College central campus. 

A rape was reported on the Broward College central campus yesterday next to FAU’s Davie campus, FAU police said today.

The email was sent out to the FAU students, faculty, and staff because it “concerns the safety of the university community.” FAU police also reported the incident to comply with the Clery Act, which requires disclosure of crime on college campuses. The Davie Police Department is currently investigating this case.

The suspect followed the individual from the community college’s library to its gymnasium, where he then raped them in the men’s locker room Wednesday morning. The individual’s gender was not specified.

FAU Police Chief Sean Brammer explained why the email was sent out by FAU, saying, “Due to the proximity of it and Clery, we had to send out a timely warning, but this is not our case.”

The suspect was described as a black male with short dreadlocks, who is estimated to be around 19 years old. He was wearing purple jogging pants when the incident occurred.

The University Press contacted Davie Police Public Information Officer Sgt. Mark Leone for comment, but he could not be reached as of publication time.

Check back with the UP as this story develops.
