INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.– Police say an arrest has been made in connection with several recent sexual assault cases at IUPUI.

Quijado is facing two counts of sexual battery, one count of attempted sexual battery, two counts of public nudity and two counts of public indecency.

Three sexual assaults were reported over the course of three days. Students were alerted via IUPUI’s campus-wide alert system.
