GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Furman University officials said they've closed the investigation into an alleged sexual assault without filing charges.

University spokesman Vince Moore said a female student came forward and reported the assault Friday.

The victim told officials the assault happened in her dorm room on campus, Moore said.

Moore said the suspect was an acquaintance of the victim's, who was identified, interviewed by university police officers, and trespassed from the campus. The victim decided not to press charges at this time, Moore said.

Moore said there is no threat to other students.

University police consider the investigation closed at this time, Moore said.
