No Evidence in Texas Christian University Student Rape Case
According to Fort Worth police, there is no evidence that a Texas Christian University student was raped after requesting a ride through Lyft around midnight on October 14, 2016. Officer Jimmy Pollozani said that TCU police reported the suspected rape to the Fort Worth Police Department, but they are unsure who made the initial report to campus authorities.
The investigation did not yield any evidence of the assault, Pollozani said. The student had been drinking and did not have a clear memory of what occurred during the car ride. According to the student, two men called her name after her request to Lyft for a ride from the West Seventh district. She got into the vehicle, where one of the men allegedly gave her an unknown tablet and a bottle of water, which she said had an odd taste. After one of the men took off her pants, the student said that she has no further memory of what took place in the car. She remembered being returned to her dorm, where she said the man told her to shower. One of the suspects was described as a black man between the ages of 25 and 35, with short hair and a mustache.
