The Itawamba Community College Tupelo campus police officials are asking for help in the investigation of an incident that occurred this week.

An Itawamba Community College student reported being sexually assaulted after being abducted from the Tupelo campus sometime Tuesday.

Anyone with information regarding the incident should contact Ricky Brasel, ICC Campus Police Chief, at 862-8020.

The student was treated at the North Mississippi Medical Center Tuesday afternoon after being recovered and then reported the assault.

Vice President of Student Services Buddy Collins told the Daily Journal Wednesday school officials are unclear on the exact timeline of the abduction and discovering those facts will be part of the investigation.
