(AMES, Iowa) — Iowa State students are being alerted about two recent reports of sexual assaults on campus.  

The first incident happened on Jan. 17 at a fraternity house.  The second assault happened last Monday at a residence hall, according to ABC News affiliate WOI-DT-TV.

Jason Tuttle of the Ames Police Department told the television station that police have executed a search warrant of the frat house.

“We search for any type of items that could have DNA on them.  It could be bedding. It could be underwear,” said Tuttle.

College campuses across the nation are now required to warn students of any ongoing threat against them, but those alerts left some like graduate student Maria Alcvivar unsettled.

“Just reading that made me afraid a little bit,” said Alcvivar. “It’s still upsetting because nobody deserves to go through anything like that.”
