UGA student reports she was raped in downtown bar, assaulted again the same night in dorm room

By Joe Johnson

Two police departments are investigating a University of Georgia student’s report that she was sexually assaulted at two locations on the same night last weekend.

According to an Athens-Clarke County police report, an officer responded Sunday to the Family Protection Center to interview a 19-year-old student who said that the night before she was raped in a restroom at a bar on East Clayton Street.

The student said that she was drinking at the bar with friends when she needed to use the restroom and that as she walked down a hallway toward her intended destination, she was grabbed around the waist by a man who then led her to a room where he pulled down her pants and raped her, according to the report.

When the male finished the assault, he reportedly left the room with the student, passing by three other males who wore shirts bearing the bar’s logo. The student said the males were sitting outside the room the entire time that the assault happened, the police report noted.

The student said that one of the men told her that her assailant worked at the bar and that it was his birthday, according to the report. She reportedly said that when she asked the alleged rapist for his name and phone number, he provided the information, along with his Snapchat handle.

Upon rejoining her friends in the bar, the student said that she met another male, who she took back to her dorm room, “in which another sexual assault took place,” according to the report.

The ACCPD incident report indicated that the student reported the second alleged assault to UGA police, who on Thursday said that their report was not yet available for release.

And of course the fact she was under age drinking in a bar is of no interest whatsoever to the police. This is the only place I have ever seen that takes no interest in enforcing drinking age. Are the police on the take here?

Uhhh... None of this adds up. Why didn't she report the first encounter? Why didn't she say anything to the other employee's or her friends? Why would the "rapist" give her his name, phone number and social media info? NO WOMAN WHO HAS JUST BEEN RAPED WOULD MEET A RANDOM GUY WITHIN HOURS OF THE RAPE AND TAKE HIM BACK TO HER ROOM!

I'm not buying it.

Exactly, that's the biggest red flag here. Ask any woman who has been sexually assaulted and they will tell you that there is no chance they would have taken a random guy back to their home the same night.

I think this is a case where either it's the new definition of "rape" where consent can be revoked after the fact, where she thinks that she can claim rape just because she had been drinking, her inhibitions were lowered and she made decisions she regrets or she is a psychopath trying to destroy someone's life just because she can.
