A party attended by about 50 Central Washington University students resulted in "multiple" assaults and drug overdoses, authorities said Saturday.
Police initially were called to help one assault victim and one poisoning or overdose victim, according to a statement from the Cle Elum, Washington, police department.
Friends of those two victims directed authorities to the party, where police say they interrupted a possible sexual assault and found several other people suffering from assaults or poisonings/overdoses of an unknown substance, the statement said.
Twelve victims were taken to hospitals, and one was listed in critical but stable condition. About 35 other people were questioned, but police did not say how many were arrested.
