Georgetown student reportedly raped on 3500 block of O St. on Friday
A woman was raped at her residence on the 3500 block of O Street on Friday, according to a report from the Metropolitan Police Department.
According the the report, the incident occurred at 3:50 a.m. on July 10th:
Complainant 1 reports that while at the listed location, she awoke to an unknown subject laying on top of her having non-consensual sexual intercourse with her. Suspect 1 entered the location in an unknown manner. Complainant 1 was unable to give a description of Suspect 1.
The MPD report does not contain any descriptions of the victim or the suspect.
MPD Communications Specialist Gwendolyn Crump wrote in an e-mail that Georgetown’s Department of Public Safety was notified of the incident, but said she could not comment further on the particulars of the case. DPS and the University’s Office of Communications have not responded to requests for comment.
As of 5:55 p.m. DPS had not sent out a Public Safety Alert about the incident and their Daily Crime Log did not have any mention of it. It is unclear at this time whether the incident is related to the string of sexual assaults that have occurred on and around campus recently.
Update 8:45 p.m. We spoke with the victim who confirmed that she is a Georgetown student but declined to discuss the incident. She said she spoke to DPS about the assault this morning and expects a PSA to be sent out shortly.
However, Georgetown’s Director of Media Relations Andy Pino wrote in an e-mail, “MPD responded to this incident, and no incident report was filed with DPS. We have no information about the victim in this case.”
Update Wednesday 3:35 p.m. Pino just sent the following e-mail:
The complainant filed a report with DPS this afternoon, and a PSA is going out later today. MPD is conducting this investigation, and we’ve reached out to them to offer our full cooperation.
Update Wednesday 4:40 p.m. DPS just put out a PSA about the incident.
