Police said Moore met the woman, a 19-year-old fellow student, during an informal gathering at Centennial Hall, located at 1363 Prairie Street in Aurora, and offered to walk her to her dorm room early Saturday morning.

When they reached her door, Moore asked if he could see her room, according to police. She agreed but remained in the hallway, holding the door open while Moore entered the room, police said.

According to police, Moore was inside for a short time and then suddenly picked up the girl, causing the door to close behind her. Moore then sexually abused her despite her telling him to stop and attempting to free herself, police said.

Aurora University Campus Police were notified of the accusations by noon on Saturday. They contacted the Aurora Police Department and the two agencies worked together during the initial investigation. Aurora detectives arrested Moore at 6:30 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Moore appeared in bond court Sunday morning, when a Kane County judge set his bond at $40,000.

Steven McFarland, the vice president for university communications, said that the university is reviewing the facts of the case.
