The Santa Fe New Mexican reports the District Attorney's Office in Santa Fe said this week it will look into allegations made by an unnamed student at the Santa Fe school.

Last month, a detailed, explicit description of the alleged April 9 sexual assault by a male staffer appeared in flyers posted on campus and on social media. The allegations prompted outrage from students, the school's alumni council and a Pueblo women's activist group.

The flyers also alleged a pattern of harassment and inappropriate messages from another male employee.

School spokesman Eric Davis declined to comment, saying the school was waiting for law enforcement reports.

No arrests have been made.
