IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Police are investigating a reported sexual assault of a woman at a University of Iowa fraternity that’s being closed after allegations of hazing.
Iowa City Police Lt. Doug Hart said that an assault at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon’s chapter house was reported Sept. 11. No charges have been filed and no arrests have been reported.
The national Sigma Alpha headquarters said Monday that the Iowa chapter was being closed for hazing and failing to comply with fraternity standards and policies.
The university administration said it was investigating the hazing allegations and supported the action taken by Sigma Alpha’s national leadership.
Around 90 members of the UI chapter have been expelled from the fraternity. They have 10 days to move out of the frat house.
