Report shows decrease in military academy sexual assaults

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The Pentagon released a new report on sexual assaults at military academies.

Reported assaults did drop slightly at the academies last year, from 80 in 2012 to 70 in 2013, but officials don't know whether the decrease is due to fewer assaults or fewer victims choosing to come forward.

More than half of the reported assaults happened at the Air Force Academy.
