Additional messaging from Texas A&M Police:

Sexual assault is not the fault of the survivor.  Only a perpetrator can prevent sexual assault.  While a university is required under the Clery Act to notify the public of such reports, it is also our responsibility to provide information regarding protective measures.

Sexual predators often exhibit danger signals, including:

  • Individuals who exhibit controlling behaviors
  • Individuals who become angry when personal limits regarding physical intimacy are set
  • Individuals who ignore personal limits set by others
  • Individuals who deliberately and repeatedly ignore personal limits set by others and continue to make sexual advances
  • Individual who disrespect others who are intoxicated
