    Thanks c_e, I was getting confused on the different attacks. I made a list since there has been another incident reported for October.

    Please someone correct me if any of this is wrong:


    Oct. ??, 2007 - around 10 a.m.
    A woman has come forward to report an additional attack near the University of Nevada campus back in October.

    Campus police confirmed the report late Wednesday after the woman went to police on Tuesday.

    The victim told police she was walking up 11th street listening to her iPod, when a man came up from behind her and grabbed her. She screamed, and the suspect ran away.

    A University of Nevada, Reno student told police she was raped in a UNR parking garage about 10 p.m. Oct. 22 south of Lawlor Events Center and within

    100 yards of a campus police station.

    The woman in the October attack , a UNR student in her early 20s, said she was returning to her car to leave campus. UNR police Chief Adam Garcia said the woman said she was attacked from behind and held at gunpoint while being assaulted in the Whalen garage.

    According to a Reno police report, the 21-year-old woman was walking about 6 p.m. Tuesday through the Westwood Apartments parking lot, in the 400 block of College Drive, to get to a relative’s apartment.

    Thanks, c_e - I was getting too confused without having the other assaults and attempted assaults written down. Still hard to keep them straight, honestly.
