TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) — The Tippecanoe County Prosecutor's office is looking into a reported sex offense on a Shuttle service from Chicago.

Purdue Police originally took the call, they said a shuttle driver reported the incident Saturday afternoon.

According to police, the shuttle was coming to campus from O'Hare Airport.

A female passenger told the shuttle driver that a male passenger inappropriately touched her.

Purdue Police Chief John Cox said after investigating, they were able to identify a suspect.

"We don't get many cases like this, every now and then we get an altercation on a local city bus or something like that but not typically this type of altercation," said Cox. 

The Tippecanoe County Prosecutor's office is handling the investigation because the alleged incident happened outside of the Purdue Police Department's jurisdiction.
