NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - A white graduate student at Yale called police on a black graduate student who had fallen asleep in a common area of her campus residence.
  
Lolade Siyonbola posted two videos of Monday's encounter on her Facebook page, including part of a conversation with the white student who told her she was calling police after finding her in the room at Yale's Hall of Graduate Studies.
  
Police questioned Siyonbola for more than 15 minutes. They left after confirming she's a Yale student who lives in the building.

  
Neither Siyonbola nor Yale immediately responded to emails requesting comment.
  
The Yale Daily News reports that graduate students received an email Tuesday from the dean of Yale's graduate school of arts and sciences inviting them to share their concerns about the incident.
