SALT LAKE CITY — University of Utah police are investigating a sexual assault on campus.

The victim was walking on campus sometime between 8:30 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Wednesday to meet someone when two men “approached from behind a dumpster and proceeded to sexually assault the victim,” according to a prepared statement from the university.

The assault was reported to police by a University of Utah Health worker just after midnight Thursday. The victim, a juvenile, is not affiliated with the university, according to the school.

Police stated Thursday they were still trying to determine exactly where on campus the assault occurred. No description of the attackers was available.
