Why is Ruston PD Involved?

Alleged rape on GSU campus investigated

GRAMBLING, La. (KNOE 8 News & KTBS) – A Grambling State University Spokesperson and Ruston Police confirm an alleged rape involving two students on the GSU campus is under investigation.

The father of the alleged victim says his daughter was raped in a Fredrick Douglass dorm room Saturday night or Sunday morning.

Her father says she had been drinking with friends, but he suspects she was given drugs. The victim told her father she has limited memory of what happened, but knows she passed out and woke up nude in a bath tub.

Ruston Police say they have interviewed witnesses and are collecting evidence, and GSU acknowledges an alleged sexual assault on campus.

Ruston Police say at this time they are not ready to make an arrest.

grambling spokesperson Eric Eaton says the university is having Ruston Police handle the investigation, and any impending arrest in this case.

Eaton says the university has offered the victim counseling.

    Have you seen the Grambling PD? They simply lack the manpower.

    Why not the LPSO?

  3. Bob Sherunkel Says:

    Its on a state facility and would more appropriately be handled by LSP. Barring that, LPSO needs to be handling it. An attorney might argue that jurisdictional issues violated the law.
