University of Central Oklahoma police are investigating a report of a second sexual assault on campus within a month, an official said.

The assault occurred Friday morning at the Central Plaza residence hall, university spokeswoman Adrienne Nobles said.

Campus police have a person of interest identified but no arrest had been made as of Saturday evening, she said.

No other details were released as of Saturday evening. Nobles said a full report likely would be available Monday afternoon.

UCO police investigated another on-campus sexual assault case Sept. 23. An 18-year-old male student told police he met his assailant in a common area in Murdaugh Hall, a men's dormitory, and then went into a dorm room, where the incident took place.

The Oklahoma County sheriff's warrant team arrested Elvis J. Perkins, 33, on a sexual battery complaint Oct. 15. Perkins was arraigned Thursday, according to court documents.

UCO had two reported forcible sexual offenses in 2010, the most recent year for which records are available, according to data collected under the federal 1990 Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act.

There also were two forcible sexual offenses reported in 2009, and one in 2008.
