A university spokesperson confirmed that Rosing was the student who was arrested and the university president released an email to students speaking on the situation.

In his email he said the student employee victim “acted with professionalism, restraint and discretion.”  It went on to say the school’s Office of Student Conduct is reviewing the assault and that its Student Success teams “are reaching out to the student victims who were subject to this behavior to offer support.”

“To be clear: we condemn this behavior and will not tolerate it under any circumstance,” Eli Capilouto, the university’s president said in the email. “The safety and well-being of our community has been — and will continue to be — our top priority.”
