SAN DIEGO (KGTV) - San Diego State University Police Department is investigating two separate sexual assaults on campus.

The first incident was reported October 7th at fraternity row. A woman told authorities her friend was assaulted at the Delta Upsilon house, according to a police report.

Another sexual assault was reported October 21. Police say a person told them their friend was possibly drugged then sexually assaulted at the Zapotec residence hall.

SDSU released a statement on the incidents saying in part: "Both of these incidences occurred during the early morning hours. No alerts were sent to the campus community as these cases involve suspects who have been identified and there was no perceived danger to our campus community."

SDSU campus police say detectives are handling the cases but would not go into further detail.

Delta Upsilon International Fraternity Executive Director Justin Kirk says they are currently working with our San Diego State Chapter to investigate the allegations.

In a statement to 10News, Kirk wrote: “At this time, we know the alleged incident did not occur at the chapter facility, and authorities have not reached out to the chapter regarding the allegations. Our goal is to ensure Delta Upsilon provides a safe environment for all. Sexual assault is a very serious matter. As such, we will work cooperatively with any external investigations that may take place.”

Records at the college show these are the only two sexual assaults on campus for the month of October.
