Many students at Massachusetts Institute of Technology are nervous after seeing a string or recent assaults on women who have connections to the MIT community.
The most recent incident happened at an MIT fraternity house, when a burglar allegedly assaulting a woman who was sleeping.
It happened around 5:30 Sunday morning at the Phi Kappa Theta house on Commonwealth Avenue in Boston.
Police say a woman sleeping woke up to a man touching her leg.
A brother of the fraternity did not want to talk to NBC10 Boston about the disturbing incident, but investigators say the suspect ran away using the back stairs.
“This campus isn’t as safe as I thought it would be,” MIT freshman Kendall Yu said.
Yu is one of many students sharing that sentiment after the recent string of assaults this month on women connected to MIT.
"There are these things that are coming out a lot recently but for me it's just kind of been there the whole time," said another MIT student.
In the early hours of May 19, a woman says she was raped at the Theta Delta Chi fraternity house on Memorial Drive in Cambridge.
On May 5, a woman said she was sexually assaulted at a party in a dorm. According to MIT Police, the victim was talking to the suspect at that party. She then woke up next to the suspect with no memory of how she got there.
Some students at MIT say they wish the university would do more to raise awareness and prevent sexual assaults.
“It kind of happens a lot, just not everyone reports it,” one student said.
MIT Police are still investigating all three incidents.
