2014 Chico State Clery Report reveals increase in campus sexual assaults

Chico State has released its annual Jeanne Clery report of crime statistics over the last three years.

The university saw a decrease in robberies, burglaries, and aggravated assaults in 2013, but an increase in sexual assaults.

In both 2011 and 2012, Chico State had a total of five reported sexual assaults.

That number increased to eight in 2013.
Chico State's sexual assault victim advocate says the increase may be a positive sign of something else.

"While it might be natural to kind of be alarmed by that, when I look at it, I look at it as a possibility that more people reported."
