IUPD investigates reported rape at Memorial Hall



The Indiana University Police Department is investigating a reported rape that occurred Oct. 6 in Memorial Hall, according to a university email sent to students Wednesday morning.

A suspect has not been located yet, police said. The student and suspect met on the dating app Tinder. They went to the student’s room in Memorial Hall, where the incident occurred, police said. 

IUPD does not currently know the suspect’s identity, but the investigation team is looking into the suspect’s Tinder profile, IUPD Deputy Chief Shannon Bunger said. It is believed the suspect is not an IU Bloomington student, according to the email.
