ITHACA, N.Y. (AP) - Administrators at Cornell University are urging students to take precautions after three reported incidents on or near the campus.

Cornell police say a woman was approaching a bridge early Sunday morning when a man grabbed her from behind and forced her to have sexual intercourse. There were two other reports Sunday morning of women being grabbed and fending off their attackers, one in a parking lot and the other in an apartment.

As police investigate the incidents, Cornell officials are urging people to lock their doors and to take precautions while out walking in the evening.

Meanwhile, officials at the University at Albany sent out an email urging students take precautions after a reported off-campus rape of a student this weekend.
