COLUMBIA — A 19-year-old woman reported that she was sexually assaulted at a party held at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house early Saturday morning.

The incident occurred around 2 a.m. on Nov. 7 but was not reported until later that afternoon. The victim knew the suspect, Columbia Police Department Public Information Officer Jessie Haden said.

Haden said no charges have been filed in the incident because the victim had not yet decided whether to seek prosecution of the suspect.
