Framingham State University spokesperson Dan Magazu said it was one student who assaulted three other students. The person's name is not being released. The male student was banned from taking classes and being on campus.
All four students lived on campus and the attacks took place on campus; thus the neighborhood near campus was not notified, said Magazu.
Magazu said the university is conducting an internal investigating into the attacks, which were not rape.
University police officials urge all community members to report any activity or persons that they believe is suspicious in nature to ensure the safety of the community.
