WPI student accused of raping woman
A Worcester Polytechnic Institute student accused of raping another student over the weekend, despite the woman’s alleged pleas for him to stop, was ordered in Central District Court yesterday to stay away from all college property. Gregory R. Gardner Jr., 22, of 7 Dean St., Apt. 1, was arraigned on two counts of rape and one count each of kidnapping and indecent assault and battery on a person over 14. The charges stem from an alleged rape that occurred Saturday night or Sunday morning in the parking lot of Bancroft Tower.
