Smithfield, Rhode Island, police are investigating allegations of a sexual assault on the Bryant University campus.

A campus-wide email sent to students says the alleged incident occurred Sunday morning.

The school's Department of Public Safety and Smithfield police were called to remove a male suspect from campus. The student has been suspended, pending a hearing, and will not be allowed to attend the university in the meantime.

School officials did not identify the suspect.

Another man was arrested at the school in late September after he allegedly broke into a student's dorm room and sexually assaulted her.
