BERKELEY (CBS SF) — Berkeley police said they have received reports of three separate sexual assaults last Saturday, at least two that occurred in fraternities at the University of California at Berkeley. A member of a campus fraternity was arrested in connection with one of the assaults.

Police said there also was a third sexual assault on Saturday that may have occurred in a fraternity.

An email from the fraternity president to KPIX 5 said, “We are currently working with our international headquarters and with authorities…as we are able to share more, we will share more.”

The reports of sexual assaults occurred on the same weekend that Gov. Jerry Brown signed the “Yes Means Yes” bill, requiring that sexual partners on college campuses give “affirmative, conscious and voluntary agreement” to sex.
