University police open investigation into alleged rape on campus

Police have opened an investigation into an alleged rape that occurred on campus Aug. 29.

University police have a suspect in the case, which has since been passed to the Office of the District Attorney of San Francisco, but no arrests have been made.

Police responded to the report at the Village at Centennial Square at 6:25 p.m. Sept. 1. The victim was “drugged” at the time of the incident, according to the University Police Department Crime and Arrest Log.

“There was someone crying and people were being interrogated,” said Queer Alliance Director Pablo Ramirez, who said he heard the report unfold outside of his office. “Nobody talked about it the next day.”

Police officials and the district attorney were not immediately available for comment.

“Every reported incident of sexual assault will be taken seriously and investigated fully,”  said LuoLuo Hong, SF State’s Title IX coordinator and vice president for student affairs and enrollment management. “We will ensure that both the victim is provided needed assistance and support, and that the accused is afforded all due process rights.”
