Former IU student faces rape charges after alleged assault at fraternity house
UPDATE (June 24, 2016)– John Enochs pleaded guilty to battery with moderate bodily injury and was sentenced to one year of probation.
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (Sept. 15, 2015)– A former Indiana University student has been charged with two counts of rape after an assault was reported at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house in April.
John Phillip Enochs, 21, surrendered to police after a warrant was issued for his arrest.
Court documents show that the victim told police she’d been raped at the fraternity house, but didn’t know her alleged attacker. She said she repeatedly told him to stop, but he held her down. Eventually she was able to leave the room and get away.
Police recovered security video from the fraternity, which they say shows Enochs entering a room with the woman. About 24 minutes later, she left.
Health officials determined she suffered a laceration to her genitals.
During their investigation, police found a similar case from 2013. The victim in that case was contacted and agreed to help with the investigation.
DNA evidence, witness statements and identification from victims gave investigators enough cause to charge Enochs with two counts of rape.
