Two rapes were reported to the IU Police Department on Saturday.
One alleged rape occurred at about 2:45 p.m. Saturday at Alpha Epsilon Pi, IUPD Capt. Andy Stephenson said.
The male suspect invited the female victim into the house to drink and began making unwanted sexual advances toward her, Stephenson said. Alcohol was involved.
The suspect doesn’t live in the house but is a member of the fraternity, Stephenson said.
IUPD collected evidence from the victim and the scene and contacted the suspect’s lawyer. They are awaiting a time to interview him. Although there were no witnesses to the event, there were witnesses that saw the two beforehand, who IUPD is interviewing, Stephenson said.
The investigation is still active.
Another rape was reported to IUPD after someone completed an anonymous rape kit. As of now, IUPD is not investigating the rape per the wishes of the victim, Stephenson said.
