A suspect arrested after a report of a sexual assault in Antigonish is scheduled to learn the outcome of his trial in August.
In an email to students, officials at StFX said a student reported an off-campus sexual assault to them in January.
They said she and a friend were offered a ride by a man and woman, who were not known to them, outside a pub in the town early one morning.
University officials said the man, who was not a member of the StFX community, then assaulted the student.
They said police arrested him, and charged him with sexual assault, assault and uttering threats.
Robert Layes, 50, who pleaded not guilty to all three of his charges in March, stood trial in Antigonish Provincial Court Monday; the judge in the case reserved their decision.
A verdict is expected Aug. 28.
