University of Minnesota police now say a student who says two men raped her in her dorm room knew her attackers. The attack happened early Sunday morning at Sanford Hall. The student originally told police she didn’t know the men who approached her in the hallway outside her room.
Police say they made an arrest Saturday after a masked suspect woke up someone sleeping in a Mankato dorm and pepper sprayed them.
Some students at the University of Minnesota were forced out of their apartments due to moldy dorm rooms. Students found visible mold in some of the dorms in Frontier Hall at the end of September. The University’s Department of Environmental Health and Safety tested 35 rooms and found mold in 18. They said the mold likely was a result of the high heat and humidity in August, so mold grew in the air conditioning units and spread to the carpet.
A University of Minnesota student’s dorm room has been raided by the FBI, according to a U of M representative.
