WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind.– Police say a rape was reported Monday that allegedly occurred at an off-campus Purdue University fraternity house in January.

The report said the rape took place on January 23 at 1 a.m. at the Pi Kappa Phi house located in the 300 block of North Grant Street.

Captain Eric Chin told The Lafayette Journal and Courier that Purdue police can’t investigate the CSA report because it was not reported to their agency directly, indicating the victim does not want to move forward with a formal investigation.

If the victim decided to seek out an investigation from law enforcement, the West Lafayette Police Department would handle the investigation.

Anyone who has information can can call the WeTip Hotline at 1-800-782-7463 or Purdue University’s anonymous hotline at 1-866-818-2620.

“The conduct alleged by the report is inconsistent with the fraternity’s values,” Mark E. Timmes, Pi Kappa Phi’s chief executive officer, said in the statement to the Journal and Courier. “We have instructed our students to cooperate fully with all investigative efforts.”
