Informational Message from Alert Carolina: Police file charges for sexual battery

Dear Students, Faculty and Staff:

The UNC Department of Public Safety has charged a non-UNC student, Dontay Awtwanne Rone, 20, of Chapel Hill, with two counts of sexual battery.

The first offense occurred June 20 at roughly 9:26 a.m. when a female student was touched on her buttocks after being followed from Franklin Street to the Paul Green Theater on campus.

The second offense occurred at roughly 8:15 a.m. July 25. The victim, a female UNC student, was walking from the intersection of Cameron Avenue and South Columbia Street when she was allegedly followed by the suspect and assaulted by being touched on her buttocks when she went inside Carroll Hall.

About Informational Messages: The University sends an Informational Message to inform the campus community about a situation that is not an emergency, but is expected to be of significant interest to the campus. An Informational Message is one of three tiers of communication under the University’s revised emergency communications plan. Emergency Warning refers to a siren activation for a significant emergency. And a Timely Warning is issued if there is a continuing danger AND notification will not compromise law enforcement efforts.

Sponsored by the UNC Department of Public Safety.
