Rape reported at Eagle Village

Anthony Belinfante

An Eagle Village resident reported an act of sexual assault to Georgia Southern Police on Sunday.

The victim, who has requested to remain unidentified, told GS police that she had been assaulted by an acquaintance in her room earlier that evening.

Along with reporting the assault, the student also expressed interest in visiting the Statesboro Regional Sexual Assault and Child Advocacy Center or The Teal House, to receive a sexual assault kit.

The victim told GS police that she believed the pink bracelet the acquaintance was wearing at the bar was still in the trash can of her room, and gave officers consent to search her room for the item.

Two pink bracelets were found in the room, one in the trash and another in the student’s closet.

Since reporting the incident, the victim has chosen not to pursue the case any further.
