Philadelphia police hunt for 4 men who allegedly gang raped college student
Philadelphia police have ordered a manhunt for four men who reportedly picked up a LaSalle University student just off campus and gang raped her, according to NBC 10 Philadelphia.
The 20-year-old woman told police she was walking about a mile from campus at 10 p.m. on Easter Sunday when she was abducted by four men who pulled up in a black van. NBC 10 reports that they then took her to a house and repeatedly raped her, then dropped her off at an unknown location and fled the scene.
The victim reported that the men were between the ages of 20 and 25 and that one of the perpetrators had “MM” tattooed on his face.
Despite the police investigation, the university did not inform the student body. University spokesperson Jon Caroulis said in a statement to NBC 10, “The university officials met with the student and her family and offered support.”
“I’m really … shocked, I guess,” said fellow student Karla Fernandez. “I’m really disappointed that this is the way I’m finding out.”
