CHARLOTTESVILLE -- Broken windows and spray-painted messages marked a University of Virginia fraternity house following the publication of an article in Rolling Stone on Wednesday that details an alleged sexual assault of a student by seven men at the residence in September 2012.
Charlottesville police responded to reports of vandalism at 2:45 a.m. Thursday at the Phi Kappa Psi house on Madison Lane. According to police, several windows had been broken with bottles and portions of cinder blocks. Spray-painted messages criticizing the fraternity were also posted on the exterior.
The Rolling Stone article details an incident in which Phi Kappa Psi fraternity members allegedly took turns raping a female student at a party at their house.
The national chapter of Phi Kappa Psi released a statement Wednesday night in response to the allegations saying that both the local and national chapters fully intend to cooperate with the university and city police as they conduct their investigation.
