AUSTIN (KXAN) — Authorities have issued an arrest warrant for a 24-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting a woman in her dorm room on the St. Edward’s University campus last week.

According to an arrest warrant, the victim told university police she was friends with her attacker and she originally invited him over to watch a movie. When the man made sexual advances towards her, the victim resisted and told him “no,” but the suspect did not stop.

While the suspect isn’t currently in custody, St. Edward’s University police say they expect the arrest to happen on Tuesday afternoon.
