uLaval tightens security, condemns perpetrators in wake of sexual assault reports

October 18, 2016

Quebec City police are looking for three individuals in their 20s following four complaints of breaking and entering and two complaints of sexual touching at Université de Laval last Friday, reports CBC. The suspects were said to be roaming residence hallways and knocking on doors at random. The university has tightened security on campus and issued a release condemning the attacks and pledging to protect the safety of all students. The incidents have led PhD student Vahid Asgharian to call for the university to restrict access to residences through card readers, as under the current system, he claims that “everybody can enter” a given residence building.
