Temple University is more known for its armed robberies than its greek life, yet their AEPI chapter made national headlines amongst recent disturbing allegations.
From NBC Philadelphia:
Temple University has suspended a men’s fraternity as police investigate three alleged sexual assaults and underage drinking during social events at the fraternity’s house.
Temple police issued a bulletin Friday saying they had received “multiple credible reports” of various alleged crimes at Alpha Epsilon Pi events. The alleged acts reported included sexual misconduct, sexual assault, drug use and underage drinking.
Well, they’re fucked. These allegations are what is killing greek life around the country. Fraternities get a bad wrap already, but once you throw in sexual assault it’s a completely different monster.
So far three girls have stepped up and said they have been sexually assaulted, and there are rumors that more could come forward. Although these are still allegations, they are very serious and Temple has already taken action by suspending the fraternity.
Another source, Forward, has received a statement from the Head of Philadelphia Police Department’s Special Victims Unit:
One alleged victim told police this month that she was sexually assaulted at a party in April, Philly.com reported. Another told police that she went to a party in March where she was given several drinks.
“She said she became dizzy and disoriented, and that’s the last thing she remembered until she woke up in bed with one of the members of the fraternity,” Capt. Mark Burgmann, the head of the Philadelphia Police Department’s Special Victims Unit, said at a press conference on Friday. “She believes she was sexually assaulted,” he added.
Yikes. Drugging girls adds another layer to this. I really hope the scumbags responsible for this get what’s coming to them, and then some. Now, we just have to wait and see how this situation unfolds and hope justice is served..
