Indiana University Police Bloomington is investigating a reported rape that occurred in the early morning hours of Sunday, one block east of campus in the area of Bryan Avenue.

IU Police Lt. Craig Munroe says the victim is an IU student.

She told police she was forced to the ground between two houses by three unknown male subjects. Two of the males held the 19-year-old woman on the ground while the third man raped her.


Munroe says the woman did suffer minor physical injuries during the incident.

Due to the limited light in the area the description of the suspects is limited. Two of the men were wearing shorts and a t-shirt. The third suspect is short in stature and was shorts and a tank-top.

“The investigation is active and details are very limited,” Monroe wrote in an email. “No arrest has been made at this time. IUPD did put out a mass notification of the incident at 2:45 a.m. alerting students to possible danger in the area of Bryan Ave. IUPD does not believe that there is an ongoing threat to the IU community at this time.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact police at (812) 855-6706.
