WSU student reports rape at Delta Upsilon fraternity

A female Washington State University student reported being raped at the Delta Upsilon fraternity this weekend and another reported being becoming ill after drinking alcohol, according to the Pullman Police Department.

The alleged sexual assault was reported to police just before 6:30 p.m. Friday. An 18-year-old student told police she was given alcohol before the assault, according to a police department news release.

On Saturday just after 2 a.m., a 17-year-old WSU student reported to police that she had been given alcohol at the Delta Upsilon fraternity at 815 NE Ruby St. earlier that evening and then became ill. She went to the Pullman Regional Hospital for treatment.

Investigators served a search warrant at Delta Upsilon on Saturday afternoon. A possible suspect in the sexual assault was identified and interviewed but was not arrested pending additional investigation, the news release said.

The Office of Student Conduct at WSU has been notified about the allegations.
