Bexley police are investigating two possible sexual assaults in the Capital University area.

Both incidents were reported shortly after midnight Aug. 28.

According to police reports, Capital University and Bexley police were in the process of breaking up several loud parties in the campus area at about 12:05 a.m. when they found a female lying in a driveway in the 800 block of College Avenue with a male on top of her. The male attempted to leave the area but was detained by police, who identified him and later released him.

Police requested a medic unit to treat the female for possible alcohol poisoning. Before she was transported to a hospital, police noted that she had been found with her skirt pushed up and her underwear missing.

Suspecting a sexual assault may have taken place, officers accompanied her to the hospital. They were unable to obtain a statement from her, they said, because she was too intoxicated to coherently answer questions. Police said they planned to interview her again later.

No charges have been filed against the man who was found at the scene.

A second assault was reported to have taken place at about 1:30 a.m. in the 700 block of Sheridan Avenue. A woman told police a man approached her and invited her to a party. When she declined, he allegedly pinned her against a utility pole and fondled her.

The woman said she escaped by grabbing the man by his genitals and striking him in the face with her keys, knocking him to the ground.

The man was described as white, 6-feet, 2-inches tall, with shaggy, dark brown hair and some facial hair.

Police said they do not think the two assaults were related.
