ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. (AP) -- Local police say they have uncovered more than 100 crimes reported on the Elizabeth City State University campus dating to 2007 that were never investigated.
The Virginian-Pilot of Norfolk, Va., reported (http://bit.ly/166Benu) that the crimes include 18 sexual assaults reported but not investigated.
Elizabeth City police Capt. John Young says police have solved 40 of the 126 cases. About two weeks ago, the city police began sending off-duty patrol officers to help with campus security around the clock.
Campus Police Chief Sam Beamon resigned Friday in the wake of a sexual assault case at Butler Hall last month. He had been chief for 10 years.
The Associated Press left a message with ECSU spokeswoman Kesha Williams for comment.
