Too early to say if alleged assault at UBC connected to other incidents: RCMP

VANCOUVER — Police say two men have been arrested on the University of British Columbia campus following an alleged sexual assault.

Officers responded to a report of a break and enter at a home in a residential neighbourhood on the campus early Saturday morning, and two men were taken into custody.

University RCMP say they're investigating allegations of sexual assault.

They say the suspects and the complainants are not known to each other.

The university sent a warning email to students last month after a man attempted to break into a lounge where a female student was studying.

Police earlier this year said the sexual assault of a 20-year-old woman on campus may have been connected to a series of "night prowler incidents" where a man was seen lurking in bathrooms and bedrooms at UBC residences.

Sgt. Annie Linteau with the University RCMP says it's too early to say if the latest incident is connected to other suspicious incidents on campus.
