The female student told police she was battered and raped in a room at Wright Quad last week. The suspect was identified as another student the victim knew.

Universities around Indiana were investigating multiple reports of sexual assault on campus since classes began amid a heightened national conversation about rape on college campuses.

Earlier this month, former IU student John Phillip Enochs was charged with two counts of rape in connection with separate incidents related to fraternity events.
