Former Charleston Southern employee at center of sexual assault investigation (WSB)

Corey Humphries was, until recently, the Vice President of Student Affairs at Shorter University, a small college in Rome, Georgia.

According to multiple Georgia news outlets, the Director of Campus Safety at the university has accused Humphries of sexual battery and harassment.

The school said it would not comment on those allegations, but did confirm that it is investigating. Humphries has ties to the Lowcountry. He's the former Director of Residence Life at Charleston Southern University.

The alleged victim spoke with WSB, the ABC affiliate in Atlanta, Georgia. The woman claims it happened during an early morning workout. She told WSB, "He was wanting to help me stretch so he tried to massage my leg, and things got a little bit further than my leg."

Humphries is no longer listed on Shorter University's website.

While at Charleston Southern University, he received both his undergraduate degree and Masters degree from the school; he also worked at CSU from 2007 through 2012 in administration.

ABC News 4 reached out to CSU to see if there is any current connection between Humphries and the university and we were provided the following statement:

"Corey Humphries was a former employee of Charleston Southern and left in July of 2012. He has since been employed with Shorter University. We have no further comment."
