A 19 year old man has been arrested in connection with an alleged sexual assault that took place on the Chadron State College campus over the weekend.
Chadron Police Chief Tim Lordino says Timothy Jungquist is being charged with 1st degree sexual assault after a female student told Chadron Police Tuesday that she had been sexually assaulted in Andrews Hall Sunday evening.
Lordino says police began an investigation and arrested Jungquist Wednesday evening. After taking Jungquist into custody, police served a search warrant on a room in Andrews Hall and seized a cellular phone.
Chadron Officer Shane Sanders says the investigation is still ongoing and no further information would be released at this time.
Jungquist is being held on $150,000 bond with a 10% cash provision. The Dawes County Attorney’s Office is assisting in the investigation.
