William Harris, 24, was arrested in connection with the sexual assault of a University student that occurred Feb. 12 in the South 40, according to Don Strom, chief of University Police.

Harris was arrested March 5 for violation of the terms of his parole in an unrelated crime in University City in 2003.

Harris, who was employed for only two months in 2002 by an independent food service provider located in Mallinckrodt Student Center, became the primary suspect in the sexual assault case after an extensive investigation conducted by the Clayton and WUSTL police departments.
