Here’s a story about sexual assaults occurring on or near the Montana State University campus.
Montana State University Billings officials warned students Wednesday evening of a recent string of sexual assaults against college-age women in Billings.
Billings Police Department Chief Rich St. John said in an email that the assaults date to January of this year and that it’s not yet clear if they’re related.
“Billings police are encouraging people to make sure their residences are secure and to report any suspicious behavior or persons in their neighborhood,” he said.

The MSUB website advisory also provided these safety tips:
Don’t leave windows and doors in your home or vehicle unlocked.
Don’t disclose personal information to individuals you are not familiar with. This includes social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter.
Have a safety buddy, someone you can call for a ride or for help, and create a code word or phrase that means “Come help me out of this” or “I’m in trouble.”
Before going out tell a friend where you’re going and when you’ll be back. Let them know if your plans change.
Never leave your drink unattended or with someone you don’t know. Date rape drugs are easy to use. And men are just as vulnerable as women.
Don’t take drinks or anything else from strangers, even food.
Don’t offer rides to people you don’t know.
Above all, trust your instincts.
