Montana State University has temporarily suspended its recognition of two fraternities after weekend rape reports.
Dean of Students Matt Caires tells the Bozeman Daily Chronicle the fraternities received interim suspension notices on Monday. While suspended, the fraternities can't participate in any events or host any events at their houses.
The school alerted students, faculty and staff on Monday of the two rape reports. One woman reported early Sunday that she had been sexually assaulted by two men in a bedroom at the Sigma Chi fraternity house. Another woman reported she thought she had been drugged and sexually assaulted during a party Friday night at the Pi Kappa Alpha house.
MSU Police Chief Robert Putzke says six rapes have been reported to campus police this year. No one has been arrested.
