March 26, 1998


A 20-year-old Lawrence woman reported she was raped by an acquaintance during a party.

The woman, who reported the incident Wednesday, told police she was at a party in the 2500 block of Crestline. She went to sleep in a bedroom of the house and later woke up because she thought her boyfriend was in bed.

The incident occurred after 3 a.m. on March 2.

Lawrence Police Officer Michael Monroe said the man in bed began taking liberties with the woman, and when she realized it wasn't her boyfriend she reportedly told him to stop.

The woman said the alleged suspect took advantage of her because she was intoxicated.

No one had been arrested in the incident.
