Police at the University of Central Arkansas are investigating another reported sexual assault on campus this academic year.

The UCA Police Department responded around 7:30 p.m. Wednesday to a report that a student had been sexually assaulted by a classmate, according to a statement from Lt. Brad Moore.

Moore said the sexual assault happened around 1 a.m. Tuesday at a residence hall for upperclassmen honors students on the university’s campus in Conway.

According to a daily crime log, an investigation into the rape — the second reported during the 2017-18 academic year, which began late last month — remains active.

On Sept. 8, a rape was reported at a different UCA residence hall. The victim, an 18-year-old student, said she was sexually assaulted by a classmate who had walked her back to her dorm from a party at the Sigma Tau Gamma fraternity house.

Michael Andrew Zeher, 18, of Bentonville was arrested on a charge of rape in that investigation. He has pleaded not guilty and is set to appear in Faulkner County Circuit Court on Oct. 16.

A request for more information regarding Tuesday's reported sexual assault was not immediately returned.

Was this reported 18.5 hours later or are the UCA police that slow to respond? Something in this story seems off.
