The intruder was said to have sneaked into the victim’s room between 5 am and 6 am and tapped her while she was sleeping.
Major Rtd Bentum, indicated that “keeping an eye on 20,000 people in a controlled area is a difficult task” adding that it was not humanly possible to give concrete assurance that the incident was not going to happen again.

“This will ensure that order is brought on campus,” he noted.
