Five of the 17 sexual assaults that occurred on the campus of George Washington University in the last four years happened inside GW Hospital, according to a report from The GW Hatchet.

Three of the offenses reported to metropolitan police were classified as rapes, and two of the incidents involved victims who claimed they were medicated during their assault. The ages of the victims assaulted in the hospital range from 28 to 66. Information on the assaults, which the independent campus newspaper obtained via a Freedom of Information Act, details both male and female victims.

GW Hospital staff members were identified as suspects in at least two of the cases, according to the report.
