COLUMBIA — A 19-year-old MU student reported being raped outside of the Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity house early Saturday morning after attending a party at the house.

The woman told police she was standing outside the fraternity house at 24 E. Stewart Road around 1 a.m. when the man approached and raped her, Columbia Police Sgt. Don Hawkins said.

Hawkins said the only details she could provide about the suspect were that he was about 5’ 6” and of average or slightly muscular build. The woman went home after the incident but later decided to contact police, Hawkins said.
