    EUGENE, Ore. - Eugene Police say an investigation into assaults on two people in a Jepperson Acres home back in November "was complicated by conflicting statements and evidence that required additional investigative time to validate."

    Police said both victims have since been released from the hospital.

    No arrests have been made.

    The case has been submitted to the Lane County District Attorney for review and possible action.

    Police responded to the home on 2500 block of Jeppesen Acres at 1:50 a.m. back on November 4.

    "Both victims were transported to a local hospital for treatment and have since been released," police said Thursday. "At the time, there was no indication of an ongoing threat to the public at-large."

    Neighbors said police could be seen visiting the scene for several days.

    "The investigation was complicated by conflicting statements and evidence that required additional investigative time to validate. The prolonged effort was necessary to understand the facts of this case," police said Thursday. "Additionally, the forensic evidence and processing requirements related to this case were complex. It is essential for forensic staff to follow strict protocol and procedure to gather admissible evidence in all cases. This goal requires meticulous and time-consuming effort."

    Police have not released any information about the identities of the injured people and the circumstances of the assault.
