Following a reported rape at Eagle Village on Sunday, a second reported rape this week occurred at Thursday night at Freedom’s Landing.

According to the GS Crime and Fire Log, the case of rape occurred between 5 p.m. and 8 p.m.

While the case is still under further investigation, GS Police Chief Laura McCullough said neither the victim or the other party allegedly involved were students.

According to the GS Public Safety’s Clery Log, there were a total of eight reported on-campus rapes in 2017.

While it is unclear the relation between the victim and perpetrator, the victim in Sunday’s Eagle Village case described the perpetrator as an acquaintance.

Students are at an increased risk during the first few months of their first and second semesters in college, according to the Rape, Abuse and Incest National Network.
