OUPD responds to an incident on the South Oval Feb. 8.

According to an OU Police Department log, the Sexual Misconduct Office reported a rape to OUPD on Sept. 17. 

The rape allegedly occurred Sept. 14 in a residence hall, according to the log, and was first reported to the Sexual Misconduct Office before the office notified OUPD.

The Daily obtained an incident report Friday from a university spokesperson, which confirmed the same details included in the log.

This story was updated at 10:56 a.m. Sept. 20 to include information from the report shared by a university spokesperson.
