Fox News reports a 20-year-old UCLA student and Brownsburg High School graduate was behind bars today, jailed in lieu of $100,000 bail after his arrest for allegedly trying to rape a woman following a party at the Theta Chi fraternity house, campus police said.
Police responded around 2:30 a.m. Friday to a call about an aggravated assault, which turned out to be the suspect choking the victim at the fraternity house, just west of the UCLA, campus police said.
Paul Meyer was arrested at the fraternity house without incident for suspicion of attempted murder, campus police said Saturday morning. The department in the afternoon clarified that statement, and said the suspect was booked for suspicion of assault with intent to commit rape and false imprisonment.
The victim, a female UCLA student, was treated and released at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center, campus police said.
