    A University of Connecticut student reported an attempted sex assault  during an off-campus party on Friday night.

    According to an e-mail the school released on Wednesday, the female student said she was walking down a hallway in the house when a man who seemed drunk pulled her into a dark room and tried to sexually assault her.

    She used self-defense, got out of the room and left the party.

    The university statement said they are working to ensure that the victim has access to support services and resources and they ask anyone with information about the incident to call UConn Police at 860-486-4800 or use the anonymous tip line at crimealerts@uconn.edu.
