Third Sexual Assault Allegation This Month at UCSB Fraternity
By edhat staff
Sigma Pi Fraternity in Isla Vista is accused of its third sexual assault allegation in one month.
UC Santa Barbara Police sent out a "timely warning and emergency notification" on Monday, October 28 reporting a rape inside a bedroom at Sigma Pi, 760 Embarcadero Del Mar Goleta, on the evening of October 26.
The suspect is described as a white male adult, 22 years old, 5’10”, unknown weight, with medium-length brown hair and brown eyes, wearing a white shirt and blue shorts. The suspect is not known to the complainant, who filed the report anonymously.
Earlier this month, two separate incidents of sexual assault were reported at a fraternity event involving date rape drugs. UC Police did not name the fraternity involved, but the Daily Nexus is reporting Sigma Pi removed one of its fraternity members following the sexual assault allegations involving two different women.
UCSB students and Isla Vista residents are demanding action from the University and the fraternity. School organizations "Take Back the Night," "Intersectional Feminists," and "M.U.J.E.R" are hosting a Demonstration Against Sexual Assault on Thursday from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at The Arbor.
"In light of recent events on campus, we are demonstrating to implement a list of demands and make UCSB a safer place for all!" the flyer reads.
UCPD is investigating this crime. If you have information that might assist in the investigation, please contact the UCSB Police Department at (805) 893-3446, or report crime information anonymously at www.police.ucsb.edu/contact-us/report-crime.
