Reported Rape — Hope Hall

Reported Oct. 14, logged Nov. 15

A person not affiliated with Biola reported to Campus Safety last month that a student was raped last month in Hope Hall. After further investigation, Campus Safety discovered the alleged rape accusations were false. 

"When contacted by Campus Safety for further investigation, the alleged student victim informed Campus Safety that the alleged incident did not occur," Campus Safety public information officer Justin Shelby wrote in an email. "Under the Clery Act, Campus Safety is required to disclose all crimes and alleged crimes reported to the department, even if the allegations are not true."

The case was cleared after Campus Safety declared the allegations falsely rendered.
