BELLEVILLE, IL (KTVI) – Belleville police have arrested a Lindenwood student in connection with a sexual crime on campus. Authorities say a 17-year-old female student told them an 18-year-old male student performed an unwanted sexual act while she was asleep in her dorm room last Wednesday.

Belleville police have contacted the U.S. Attorney’s Office because the accused is not a U.S. citizen.

Charges could be filed as early as Wednesday.
