Woman allegedly sexually assaulted at fraternity party, Cal Poly police say

A woman was allegedly sexually assaulted late Oct. 31 at a party hosted by the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity at 740 W. Foothill Blvd. in San Luis Obispo, possibly as a result of being given drugs without her knowledge, according to the Cal Poly police department.

In a crime alert message sent to campus residents Saturday evening, the department said the victim was rendered unconscious and awoke to find a male “with blond hair and blue eyes with the first name of Jake ... engaging in sexual activity without her consent.”

University police were informed about the alleged incident secondhand, and the victim declined to file a report on the matter, “so there is no criminal investigation at this time,” according to university spokesman Matt Lazier.

Cal Poly provided on- and off-campus resources and support to the victim, he said.

The university police department issued the alert because it is required by law to notify the campus of a possible safety threat in order to help prevent similar crimes.

No other information about the alleged incident could be learned Saturday night, including whether the victim or the man named Jake is a Cal Poly student.
