Student Newspaper Reports Rape Allegation at UCLA Fraternity

A female UCLA student was allegedly sexually assaulted by another student while she was incapacitated this weekend at a building off campus, the UCLA police department said Thursday.

Campus police detectives are investigating the attack, reported Sunday, which would have occurred between Saturday night at 11:15 p.m. and Sunday morning at 9 a.m. in a building just west of campus, police said.

Police logs place the alleged rape in the 500 block of Gayley Avenue. The campus newspaper, the Daily Bruin, said it allegedly took place in a fraternity — there are several on that block.

The woman's alleged attacker is a male student about 20 years old, 5-foot-8 with dark hair and brown eyes, police said. Neither the victim nor her reported attacker were identified.

"I don't think a Bruin would do that to another Bruin," said student Ayla Olson, who was hoping to hear more information on the case.

Students who spoke with NBC4 said they feel safe but would like more training about how to act in scenarios involving alcohol and sex.

"The general feeling that I get from my peers is that it's not taken very seriously ... I do think there should be more education about it," student Ashlyn Thomas said.

Police ask anyone with information on the investigation to call 310-825-9371, and mention case number 15-0216.
