The LSU Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha has voluntarily suspended meetings “outside normal business meetings” following the report of an alleged sexual battery during a fraternity party Friday night, according to a statement from the national office of Pi Kappa Alpha International Fraternity.

 

“Alpha Gamma’s immediate thoughts and prayers are with the alleged victim in this matter. The Chapter does not condone these alleged activities and is cooperating with authorities in this investigation to gather additional facts and to aid in identifying the individual involved,” according to the statement.

 

The Daily Reveille previously reported the alleged assault took place during “PIKE’s Peak,” a party at the fraternity house. According to an LSUPD report, the victim, who is not a University student, said she was sexually assaulted around 1 a.m. by an unknown white male in the backyard of the fraternity house.

 

The voluntary suspension includes upcoming social events.

For more information on the investigation, The Daily Reveille reached out to Pi Kappa Alpha President Peter Wilson, LSU Interfraternity Council President Mason Tusa, LSU Interfraternity Council Vice President of Public Relations John Paul Miller, Director of Greek Life Angela Guillory, Director of Student Advocacy and Accountability Jonathan Sanders and Dean of Students Maria Fuentes-Martin. They all either declined to comment or did not return calls from The Daily Reveille.
