Reports of Sexual Assault Increase at Two Military Academies
Reports of sexual assaults increased at two of the three national military academies — the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis and the United States Military Academy at West Point — last year, according to a new military study.
 
The Defense Department said that reports of sexual assault at all three academies decreased over all, but that is because the number of reports at the United States Air Force Academy in Colorado dropped.
 
At West Point, there were 26 reports of sexual assault in the 2015-16 academic year, up from 17 the year before. At the Naval Academy, the number rose to 28 reports from 25. By comparison, reports dropped steeply to 32 from 49 at the Air Force Academy.
