University of Kansas police are investigating the reported rape of a 16-year-old girl last month at the dormitory housing the college’s highly ranked men’s basketball team, officials said on Thursday.
No charges have been filed and the victim has not been identified by police. The alleged attack was reported to have taken place between 10 p.m. on Dec. 17 and 5 a.m. on Dec. 18, campus police said in a statement.
Deputy Chief James Anguiano said in an email that five members of the Jayhawks basketball team were witnesses. The suspected assault took place at all-male McCarthy Hall, which houses the team and other students.
The victim was not a University of Kansas student and was visiting dorm residents, the police statement said. She reported no physical injury, it said, adding that Kansas Athletics officials are cooperating with the investigation.
An online police report describes the incident as “rape” and “forcible rape,” while the statement calls it “sexual assault.”
The report said other potential crimes related to the incident included contributing to a child’s misconduct, furnishing alcohol to a minor and possession of drug paraphernalia.
The story was first reported by the Lawrence Journal-World newspaper.

WATCH: Trump apologist goes down in flames when he claims Democrats don’t get attacked like Trump
Former White House advisor Matt Mowers went down in flames trying to claim Democrats call everyone a racist when they don't agree with them. He had to go back 15 years to find an example, but still never fully explained what the example was.
In a panel discussion with MSNBC's Kasie Hunt, Mowers employed the "what about" strategy, spinning the idea that Trump's racist remarks were justified because Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) used an anti-Semitic trope. To be fair, Omar apologized and met with community leaders and officials to better understand anti-Semitism. Trump can't even admit when he did something wrong, much less racist.
Congress should ask Mueller these specific questions about Trump’s involvement with Russia: Conservative columnist
Conservative Never-Trump columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined the essential questions that Democrats should ask special counsel Robert Mueller in an op-ed for the Washington Post.
"Rather than engage in the normal scattershot questioning punctuated by speechifying, the House Judiciary Committee should assign its able attorney Norman Eisen to conduct the questioning," proposed Rubin. "Members could then follow up with additional questions.'
One question she proposed asking: "Mr. Mueller, the attorney general said you did not find 'collusion.' However, you did not look for collusion. Please explain what you looked for and how that differs from [Attorney General William] Barr’s assertion that you essentially cleared President Trump of collusion?"
