Homecoming week is over at Indiana State, but police are still left investigating multiple crimes from the event.

Authorities say this is the first time in many years that they can remember dealing with violent crimes during the homecoming festivities.
   
Four men appeared in a Vigo County court on Monday to face attempted robbery charges after an incident early Sunday morning, and  police are searching for two other suspects.

Officials say around 1 a.m. six men accosted two former students in a parking lot on the ISU campus.
   
One of the suspects knocked a man to the ground,the others then surrounded the female -- demanding valuables.
   
Probable cause was found for their arrests, and bond was set at $25,000 each.
   
Officials say they will continue to re-evalute how they handle the event, and look to see if there are any new measures they can put into place to help make homecoming safer for everyone.

"Given the volume of people that are here, in the amount of activity, we can probably expect that we will have some things go on. Of course those were relatively important and will need to address those," said ISU Police Chief Bill Mercier.

And Terre Haute City Police are still searching for a suspect in a sexual assault near ISU's campus on Saturday
   
A female reported that it happened while she was taking part in "The Walk" around p.m. Saturday. Officials say the woman is not an ISU student.

She told police she was grabbed around the throat by an unknown male, pulled into an ally and sexually assaulted.

Officials say she is not an ISU student.

The suspect is described as a heavyset man with a dark complexion. He's approximately 6'5", clean-shaven and with short hair.

He was wearing a blue shirt and dark skinny jeans, and last seen walking east on Wabash Ave. in Terre Haute.
