A 19-year-old female student was allegedly sexually assaulted between 8:30 and 8:45 p.m. on Monday in Williams Hall, MSU police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said.

McGlothian-Taylor said the two allegedly met on St. Patrick's Day outside of a local establishment, where they exchanged phone numbers. The two met up later at the victim's residence, where after a conversation the victim was allegedly assaulted. Police believe alcohol was involved.
