Hocking College police: Student reports sexual assault

NELSONVILLE, Ohio (AP) – A prosecutor is investigating allegations by a Hocking College student that five men sexually assaulted her.

The Athens Messenger reports a Hocking student told police Tuesday that she had been drinking at a party, returned to her dorm room, and awoke in the morning naked and in pain with five men, also naked, in the room.

The woman told police she met a friend at an event at nearby Ohio University and they went to the party where she “drank a lot.” She told police that when she returned to Hocking, she asked some people to help her get to her dorm room because she had lost her keys.

Athens County Prosecutor Keller Blackburn says campus Police Chief Al Matthews turned the case over to the prosecutor’s office.
