Police: 3 fraternity assaults unrelated

Phi Gamma Delta

The three recent sexual assault cases at fraternity houses near the University of Minnesota are not related, Minneapolis police Sgt. Bill Palmer said this morning.

He would not release further details of the three cases, including whether suspects in the second two were fraternity members. Alcohol was present in all three case, however.

Police are investigating, but have made no arrests.

In the latest case, a 19-year-old woman reported being sexually assaulted at the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity house last Thursday night.

Prior to that, a woman reported being sexually assaulted the early morning of Sept. 26 at the Chi Psi fraternity house.

On Sept. 18, a woman reportedly was the victim of an attempted sexual assault at the Delta Kappa Epsilon house.

The presidents of all 24 fraternities on the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus say they will ban parties for now, the Associate Press reports.
