One woman who claims she was sexually abused by 25-year-old Dejuan Hunt of Niagara Falls is speaking out for the first time.

In a 7 Eyewitness News exclusive interview, the alleged victim and her mother said, what happened on August 3rd could have easily been prevented had NCCC taken immediate action by notifying students and faculty after learning of Hunt's first suspected offense on July 19th.

According to the victim, she was walking in "E" building towards the student security office to get her identification when Hunt came up behind her, from the side, and shoved her into a stairwell where she claims he then tried to rape her. She says she was able to break free and immediately report the  incident to campus officials and security.

Meanwhile her mother went on record saying, "I am disgusted that nobody thought this was enough to put out a simple warning."

This investigation is on-going.
