Cornell University has suspended all fraternity parties and social events after campus police issued alerts about an alleged sexual assault and at least four alleged incidents of drug-laced drinks at an off-campus location, university officials said.

The university said in a letter Monday to students that the incidents “reportedly occurred at off-campus residences affiliated with registered fraternities.”

Cornell campus police issued a crime alert Friday about at least four alleged incidents of drug-laced drinks between September 24 and November 3, “in which students reported to have consumed little to no alcohol at an off-campus location but became incapacitated while attending parties.”

A second alert was issued Sunday after an individual reported to campus police that they were sexually assaulted between 2:30 a.m. and 4:30 a.m. while attending an off-campus event.
