HUPD is investigating a female student's report that she was “indecently assaulted” while walking on Plympton Street early Tuesday morning, a HUPD spokesperson wrote in an email to Harvard affiliates Tuesday.
Boston Police will have primary jurisdiction in the areas surrounding Fenway Park, while Harvard Police will be stationed on the University’s campuses during the Game.
The report calls for clarification of emergency response policies, expansion of HUHS counseling, and changes to Yardfest, among other recommendations.
According to the 2017 report, there were 33 reported on-campus rapes and 47 reported cases of on-campus burglaries.
Thieves climbed through the windows of freshman dorm Holworthy Hall while students were asleep and spirited away laptops, wallets, and an iPad, according to the Harvard University Police Department.
Some at the event sharply criticized Harvard for what they called a lack of institutional support. The arrest of the student has drawn allegations of police brutality.
HUPD spokesperson Stephen G. Catalano wrote in an email Monday that HUHS actually contacted HUPD first. Catalano said HUPD then transferred the call to CPD.
