The incident took place between midnight and 3 a.m. at an apartment on South Walnut Street during a Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity recruiting event, IUPD Lt. Andy Stephenson said.
Student Life and Learning immediately placed Pi Kappa Alpha under a suspension of activities pending an investigation by the Office of Student Ethics, University spokesperson Mark Land said.
Land said that the suspension is not a presumption of guilt, but a part of procedure.
IUPD was called to meet the victim at IU Health Bloomington Hospital, where it was initially believed the incident occurred at a fraternity. The department later determined the incident occurred at a private residence.
A 19-year-old suspect has been identified and contacted by IUPD. The suspect is not a member of the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity, Land said.
The victim and suspect are both IU students and met for the first time at the party. The victim said in the statement the incident occurred after moving to a quieter area in the apartment.
Stephenson said the suspect has hired an attorney and has not been interviewed by police. IUPD is actively investigating the incident and no arrests have been made.
