2 arrested at KU on suspicion of rape

LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Campus police at the University of Kansas say two men have been arrested on suspicion of raping two women in a residence hall during homecoming weekend.

6NewsLawrence reports (http://bit.ly/1sfbtvL ) the 21-year-old suspects are jailed in Douglas County without bond. They’re expected to have their first court appearances Thursday.

One suspect is from Lawrence and the other from Olathe. Police said one of the men is a KU student.

Public safety officials said the incidents were reported to have occurred between 2 a.m. and 5 a.m. on Sept. 28 at Hashinger Hall. They were unrelated to allegations of sexual assault the same weekend at a fraternity.
