MTSU student reports Halloween day rape

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT)  --  A student at Middle Tennessee State University says she was raped at the end of October.

The 18-year-old freshmen says she went to a male friend’s apartment for drinks on Halloween Day. She says she recalls consuming three drinks, but doesn’t remember much after that point.

The Behavioral and Health Sciences major says she received a text and phone video from her male friend the next day. She tells police the video showed the two of them having sex. She says the male friend texted that he’d found the video on his phone and that he was ashamed.

The student says she doesn’t remember consenting to sex and further says she wouldn’t have been likely to do so given her sexual orientation.

The student says she went to campus medical clinic for an exam that day and was told there were signs of recent sexual activity.

No further details about the case are currently available. WMOT does not identify the victims of sexual assault.
