NORMAL — After two criminal sexual assaults were reported from Illinois State University dormitories last week, police are now investigating a report of sexual abuse at Saturday's ISU football game.
The three incidents are not believed to be related.
"We had a visitor at the football game allege that a male patron had forcibly kissed her and possibly groped her as well," said ISU Police Chief Aaron Woodruff. "We're certainly investigating that, but at this time we don't have an arrest yet. ... We have an unnamed suspect."
