On Tuesday morning, LAPD detectives arrested a USC undergraduate student in connection with a sexual assault that occurred in an on-campus dorm on April 1. Aarman Premjee, 20, was arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a fellow undergraduate student, and was released just before 8 p.m. Tuesday on $100,000 bond, according to the L.A. Times.

The Times reports that the alleged sexual assault was reported immediately to USC's Department of Public Safety on the morning it occurred, and DPS reported it to the LAPD.

We reached out to USC for comment but did not immediately hear back.
