GREENVILLE, N.C. (WITN) – A protest was held outside an ECU fraternity where an alleged drink tampering and sexual assault occurred.
About 100 people gathered outside the Theta Chi fraternity house Tuesday night. In videos obtained by WITN, protestors could be heard chanting, “real men get consent” and “kick them off.” A petition was also created to remove Theta Chi from ECU. It has received more than 2,200 signatures so far.
This is not the first time the university has investigated reports at Theta Chi involving drink tampering. On September 24, 26, and 30 of 2020, ECU investigated allegations of someone giving three people pre-poured drinks with some form of a controlled substance.
A description of the suspect in the alleged sexual assault is not available, according to an ECU alert sent out Tuesday.
Greenville police said they were notified on October 30th of a possible assault at the Theta Chi house.
Police said they have not received any reports of drink tampering related to the sexual assault case.
The national office of Theta Chi said they continue to investigate what happened at the frat house.
