IU Police Expand Off-Campus Patrols After Attacks

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP): Indiana University police are expanding their patrols to off-campus neighborhoods following the sexual assaults of two female students.
 
IU Police Chief Laury Flint tells WTHR-TV she believes the expanded patrols to a few blocks beyond the campus will make a difference. The university estimates about 30,000 students live in off-campus homes and apartments.<br />  
Flint says IU police already were sometimes patrolling off campus but the policy change should increase those patrols.
 
Bloomington police say two female IU students were raped at gunpoint by two men who broke into their off-campus apartment Sunday morning. Police arrested the suspected assailants and an accomplice within 15 minutes and an exchange of gunfire. The men were not IU students.
