Ole Miss police investigating second sexual battery in 2 weeks

OXFORD, MS (WMC) - In just two weeks, University of Mississippi's police department received two sexual battery reports on campus.

The latest incident happened Friday around 11:30 p.m. in the area of South Poole Drive and West Row. The first report came on Friday, Sept. 8 inside Chi Psi's fraternity lodge.

"Not only to have it happen once on our campus, but to have it again so close together is shocking, and it makes you think it's obvious it's a real problem," said Ole Miss student Savannah Cook.

University of Mississippi Police Chief Tim Potts urges students to be careful, especially when walking around at night.

Police patrols will be increased around places where there are nighttime events.
