Second rape reported at Stonehill in 2 months

Easton — For the second time in as many months, a female student says she was raped in a dormitory at Stonehill College.

The Patriot Ledger cites a campus log that the woman reported to Stonehill officials on Monday that she was raped by a fellow student on Dec. 7. School spokesman Martin McGovern says the woman has so far decided to not seek criminal charges.

The attack followed by just two weeks a rape that was reported on Nov. 23, also in a dormitory. Easton police released composite sketches of the two suspects in that incident.

The most recent incident is the third sexual assault reported at the Catholic college since the beginning of the academic year.
