Eastern Kentucky University has cancelled a safety alert after an alleged assault of a student on campus turned out to be a false report, according to school officials.

EKU Police had been investigating after a female student said a suspect grabbed and choked her in the area between Mcgregor Hall and the Weaver Building around 2 a.m.

Investigators said the woman has since told them that the incident did not occur.
Security had already been tightened on campus prior to the assault report because First Lady Michelle Obama is scheduled to give EKU's commencement speech on Saturday.
