SMITHFIELD, R.I. (WPRI) — A Bryant University student is being held without bail after being charged with breaking into another student’s dorm room and sexually assaulting her in the middle of the night.
Daniel Jaramillo, 20, was arraigned last Thursday on charges of burglary; second-degree sexual assault; and disorderly conduct.
Eyewitness News contacted Smithfield police Friday after receiving an alert that was sent to students last week. The alert read as follows:
Early this morning, an incident occurred in one of our residence halls. A Bryant student unlawfully entered the room of other Bryant students. DPS was called and quickly located the responsible student who was then turned over to the Smithfield Police Department. The responsible student is now separated from campus. Thankfully, this isolated incident has been resolved and we feel there is no ongoing threat to our students.
Police Monday confirmed that on Sept. 25th at 3:43 a.m., a female student called Bryant Public Safety about an intruder in her campus dorm room.
She told investigators she was awoken by a man at her bedside. She told investigators the man – who she did not know – sexually assaulted her.
She said she and her roommate chased the man out and then called public safety.
Police said public safety officers located Jaramillo and detained him until Smithfield officers arrived on campus.
Jaramillo’s local address was listed as campus. However, police said he is from out of the country.
He is due for a bail hearing Oct. 9.
