LAWRENCE, KS (KCTV) -

Two University of Kansas students arrested on suspicion of rape at a residence hall have been released without being charged.

The Douglas County District Attorney's Office says they asked the University of Kansas Public Safety Office to investigate further. 

This comes after a female KU student reported she was sexually assaulted early Saturday morning by two acquaintances in her room at Cora Downs Residence Hall. According to a police report, the alleged crimes happened about 9:45 p.m. Friday.

The sexual assaults happened at different times, campus police say.

Jail booking logs show that two 19-year-old men were booked on suspicion of rape following their arrests by KU police.

Police did not provide details about what happened, and the university declined to comment.
