2 George Mason University Students Raped, School Says

George Mason University sent an alert to its students Monday after two female students reported being raped within a few days of each other, the university said.

One student reported to university police she was raped late March 17 by a male student she knows, according to the university email alert obtained by News4.

Police said the assault happened in a student residence hall or in an off-campus apartment. The victim may have "unknowingly ingested an unidentified drug" before the assault, the alert said.

On Monday, March  21, another female student reported she was raped by a man she met through an online dating app about 1:15 a.m. in her student residence hall on the Fairfax campus. The suspect is unaffiliated with the university, the school said. 

No descriptions were given for the suspects.

Police are investigating both incidents and said anyone with information should contact Mason Police at 703-993-2810 or call the anonymous tip line at 703-993-4111.
