A 24-year-old Lawrence woman reported she was raped at a party during the weekend.

The woman told police she was with friends Friday night at a local bar. Afterwards, the group went to an acquaintance's house in the 1900 block of West 31st, where the suspect and some other people were.

Lawrence Police Sgt. Susan Hadl said the woman had been drinking and began to feel ill, so she went to sleep at the house. The suspect entered the room, undressed her and raped her, Hadl said.

The woman then passed out, but reported the alleged rape on Saturday, about 12 hours later.

The suspect hasn't been arrested, but police have a possible name. Other people at the house at the time are being interviewed.
