UCT sexual assault response team releases first report
Four alleged perpetrators have been identified as students, while one is apparently a staff member.
CAPE TOWN - The first quarterly report of the University of Cape Town's (UCT) sexual assault response team has revealed four alleged perpetrators have been identified as UCT students, while one is apparently a staff member.
The team was established in April this year and is a collaborative collective designed to equip the university with knowledge and skills to effectively respond to and prevent sexual violence on campus.
UCT's sexual assault response team, in partnership with the discrimination and harassment office, has reviewed 13 reported cases of sexual violence on campus since the start of 2016.
Six rape cases were reportedly committed on campus, of which four attacks took place in residences, and one incident in the alleged perpetrator's office.
At least three incidents were associated with the Rhodes Memorial rape incidents.
An incident of sexual harassment is also alleged to have been committed in a study room in a campus residence.
