Two women were sexually assaulted by two men they met at a party Friday night. The assault occurred Friday night at approximately 10:30 p.m. around the Hunting Lodge Road area, according to an alert sent out by UConn police. 
According to reports, the women were in a wooden area with the two men at some point during the party, at this time police are unsure how the women ended up in the woods with the men.
It has been reported that one of the men had non-consensual sexual intercourse with one of women while in the woods and the other man attempted non-consensual sexual contact with the one of the women.
People with information about this event are encouraged to call the Connecticut State Police Troop C at (860)896-3200.
UConn police encourage all members of the campus community to follow steps to avoid becoming a victim in the email alert, such as never accepting a drink at a bar or party and never putting one's drink down.
More safety information can be found in the Rape, Abuse and Incest Nation Network's (RAINN) published "Ways to Reduce Your Risk of Sexual Assault," which is available online.
