A University of Kansas student has reported to police that she was raped in her dorm last summer by a man she knew.

The woman reported on Feb. 20 that she was raped by an acquaintance in August 2018 at Oliver Hall, 1815 Naismith Drive, said Deputy Chief James Anguiano of the KU Office of Public Safety.

The suspect also is a KU student who lives in a different campus housing facility, Anguiano said. He said alcohol or drugs were not reported to be involved.

The incident remained under investigation this week, Anguiano said.
