    A TCU student reported a sexual assault in the GrandMarc to police Monday night, according to Fort Worth police.Fort Worth Police Sgt. Jim Thomson said a woman reported that she woke up Sunday morning and saw a man she did not recognize in her residence at the GrandMarc at Westberry Place.

    Thomson said police were contacted when the woman went to the hospital Monday after the reported incident. At the hospital, Thomson said, a sexual assault evidence kit was administered to the woman.

    The woman told police the incident occurred between 2 a.m. and 10 a.m. Sunday, according to a report from Fort Worth police.

    Police are unable to confirm a sexual assault occurred until they receive medical reports from the hospital, Thomson said.

    Police detectives had not been able to talk to the woman as of Tuesday afternoon, Thomson said, because of effects of medication given to the woman at the hospital.

    “If they do a sexual assault kit,” Thomson said, “you can’t usually talk to them for 24 hours.”

    Thomson said the woman had not yet provided police with a description of the man.

    TCU Police sent a crime alert to students Tuesday to inform them of the reported incident.

    TCU Police Sgt. Kelly Ham referred questions to the Fort Worth Police Department, which is handling the investigation.
