MADISON (AP) — A University of Wisconsin-Madison student is accused of sexually assaulting another student in October.

According to authorities, a 20-year-old Cedarburg man was arrested Friday on a second-degree sexual assault charge. He’s accused of assaulting a 22-year-old woman at an off-campus location.

The victim was taken to the campus police station to report the assault at about 3 a.m. on Oct. 25 after asking a delivery driver for help.
