INDIANA, Pa. (AP) — An Indiana University of Pennsylvania student has been charged in an alleged rape of a woman in a fraternity house bathroom last month.

Police in Indiana, Pennsylvania, say that 18-year-old William Rice Scott, of Ellwood City, assaulted the woman at the Sigma Chi fraternity house on Aug. 28.

The woman said she was dancing on the first floor and drank from a pre-opened can of beer. She said she then found herself in a second-floor bathroom where a man forced her into a stall and performed two sexual acts against her will.

Scott faces charges including rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and sexual assault. University spokeswoman Michelle Fryling said he wasn't a member of the fraternity.

Scott's attorney, William Difenderfer, couldn't be reached for comment.
