Investigators now say a weekend report of a sexual assault at the U. of Delaware has been recanted.

They said campus police determined that no sexual assault occurred after a thorough investigation.

The woman claimed she was assaulted in the Rodney Complex on Sunday morning.

The student had said a man followed her into her dorm room and assaulted her. She claimed she was able to get the man to leave with the help of a resident assistant.

The victim recanted her statement and, police say, the investigation is now closed.
