Police in northern New Jersey are investigating an allegation of a sexual assault of a Seton Hall student that may have been captured on video.

South Orange police tell The Star-Ledger the incident occurred at an off-campus party on Nov. 16 and that it was recorded on a cellphone video that has been distributed to other students.

A university spokesman says the school conducted an internal investigation and is cooperating with authorities. Dan Kalmanson says the alleged victim is a Seton Hall student and the alleged perpetrator is not a student there.

Kalmanson said the university is urging students not to disseminate the video. He didn't provide details of the school's investigation.

The Essex County prosecutor's office didn't comment on the investigation Thursday.
