The Texas A&M University-Commerce University Police Department has released a statement concerning the recently reported sexual assualt on campus.

"After a comprehensive and thorough investigation into the sexual assault reported on March 8, the University Police Department has determined that the report was false and the described assault did not occur," the statement read. "While all reports are taken seriously, the university community is urged to remember that false reports carry a penalty under Texas State Law."

The false report, which stated that a sexual assault incident occurred on March 1st at the West Halls, wasn't filed until a week later. UPD continues to urge A&M-Commerce students to remain cautious.

"Just because we don't have a serial rapist floating around on campus, you shouldn't just drop your guard," UPD Crime Information Officer Jason Bone said. "You should use those safety precautions all the time, regardless of the situation."
