AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW) -- Officials at Paine College are saying an alleged sexual assault happened in a residence hall last week.
Alexander Riddle, 19, is facing charges of sexual battery on a female classmate.
School officials say the incident took place inside the Paine Villas, which is an all-female residence hall. The alleged victim says Riddle touched her inappropriately after she invited him to her room.
According to a statement from the college, it is against the school's policy for students to visit "within the living quarters of the opposite sex."
The incident happened at a dorm where access isn't monitored by any resident advisers, but there is surveillance on the dorms.
Officials say Riddle has been expelled following his arrest.
