San Diego State Faces Criticism Over Reported Rape

August 1, 2022

San Diego State University is being criticized by a teenager and her family over claims that she was raped by several football players last Halloween, the Los Angeles Times reported.

She was bloodied and bruised after the incident.

San Diego State initially held off on investigating what happened until the Times reported details last month.

The university said it was trying to avoid a situation where its investigation conflicted with that of the local police.
