UCA video, sexual assault investigated

Three University of Central Arkansas students are suspects in a case that includes criminal video voyeurism and second degree sexual assault against a 19-year-old woman, according to an updated police incident report released by police last week.

 

The report is redacted but police point to “possible illegal activity” surrounding the making and distribution of a video of an event at Sigma Phi Epsilon house before Feb. 8, according to the incident report.

At least one suspect is a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity. Another suspect was arrested Feb. 3 for public intoxication after a night drinking at the Sigma Phi Epsilon house, according to an incident report from that time.

The video police are investigating is connected to the Delta Zeta sorority, police have said.

“We are thankful to the UCAPD and the university administration for taking steps to investigate and ensure the well being of students is protected,” wrote Delta Zeta President Mary K. Dunlap in email recently. “Right now, it appears some details are unclear, but Delta Zeta will continue to help in any way we can.”

No arrests have been made in the case, spokesman Arch Jones said Tuesday.
