Ellwood City man charged in alleged rape at fraternity house

NDIANA, Pa. (AP) – An Indiana University of Pennsylvania student has been charged in an alleged rape of a woman in a fraternity house bathroom last month.

Police in Indiana, Pennsylvania allege that 18-year-old William Rice Scott of Ellwood City assaulted the woman at the Sigma Chi fraternity house on Aug. 28.

The woman said she was dancing on the first floor and drank from a pre-opened can of beer, then found herself in a second-floor bathroom where a man forced her into a stall and performed two sexual acts against her will.

Scott faces charges including rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and sexual assault. University spokeswoman Michelle Fryling said he wasn’t a member of the fraternity.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that Scott referred questions to his attorney, who couldn’t be reached for comment.
