VPD investigating reported sexual assaults

The Vermillion Police Department is currently investigating or aiding in the investigation of two reported sexual assaults - one of which is alleged to have occurred on the University of South Dakota campus. Based on the information received at this point in the investigation, we have no reason to believe there is a continuing threat to the community.

In general, Vermillion continues to be a safe community, and while events of this nature can be shocking, we have no reason to believe this event has increased the danger to the general public.

As always, residents should continue to exercise reasonable care with their personal safety.
