Two weeks into the fall semester, Washington State University and the Pullman, Wash. Police Department are investigating a report of a sexual assault at a WSU fraternity house.

KREM-TV reports an 18-year-old female Washington State student said she was provided alcohol and sexually assaulted at the Delta Upsilon fraternity house.

Pullman police said the alleged victim contacted the department Sept. 2. The following morning, officers said they received a second call regarding a 17-year-old, who said she had also been served alcohol at the frat house, had become ill and was admitted to the Pullman Regional Hospital. 

A few hour later, investigators served a search warrant and collected evidence at the Delta Upsilon fraternity house. KREM-TV reports a possible suspect was interviewed at the location, but no arrest was made pending an investigation.

KREM-TV reports that Washington State's Office of Student conduct is also investigating.
