The student told another person she was sexually assaulted by four frat members at the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity house on East Prospect Avenue in State College back on Jan. 15. It was then reported to police.
State College Police and Penn State University’s Office of Sexual Misconduct Prevention & Response are all investigating the allegation.

“Other appropriate offices have been notified and are involved in contacting fraternity leadership and the national organization for this fraternity to seek more information, as further action is contemplated,” a spokesperson for Penn State wrote in a statement.
On Wednesday, Penn State announced an interim suspension of the Phi Sigma Delta Sigma chapter of Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity in State College amid the investigation.
A spokesman for the international fraternity said the organization is cooperating fully with the investigation and called such alleged conduct “absolutely antithetical to our fraternity's ideals and values.”
No arrests have been made but officials continue to investigate. Anyone with information on the alleged assault is asked to contact State College Police at 814-234-7150.
