Woman groped at Seminole State College - FOX 35 News Orlando

Woman's groping at Seminole State not immediately reported to authorities

Posted: Updated:

A student at Seminole State College said she was shoved into a stairwell and groped by a man, and the school admits the attack was not immediately reported to law enforcement or students.

The incident was reported to have happened about 8:30 a.m. Wednesday, April 24. The security officer who took the report filed it but never alerted the director of security, according to a school spokesperson.

It wasn't until Monday, April 29, that the director was notified and that was passed along to the Seminole County Sheriff's Office.

The student told campus security she was approached by man as she was staring at a poster on a wall in one of the school buildings. She told investigators the man started asking her questions and asked if she wanted to walk outside with him. She said as they were walking outside, he grabbed her arm, took her up a flight of stairs and groped her all over her body, making sexual noises in her ear.

A school spokesperson tells FOX 35 that the security personnel did not follow Seminole State processes in handling and reporting last week's attack and that the college is "addressing this lapse with the employees and will take appropriate action."
