Busan police have decided to strengthen anti-sexual assault prevention activities at universities after a recent sexual assault attempt to students at Pusan National University’s female dormitory by outsiders.
The police plan to examine CCTVs, emergency bell systems, and security windows in dormitories at 30 university campuses in the city, as well as to check for hidden cameras in the bathrooms.
The police added that they can also carry out evening patrols in the campus area if the universities make the request.
Security for female students once again came into the news this past week when a 20-year-old man attempted to rape a female student by breaking into a female dormitory at PNU around 1:30 am on the 16th.
Busan District Prosecutors’ Office have issued a warrant to the man for violating the Sexual Abuse Penal Code (injury or injuries such as rape).
He claimed he was drunk and didn’t remember.
The highest court sentence for injuries and injuries including rape is life imprisonment or imprisonment for 10 years or more.
