UA FRATERNITY MEMBER CHARGED WITH RAPE

A 19-year-old fraternity member at the University of Alabama is facing charges after a woman says she was raped at a fraternity house.

Homicide investigators said they were contacted on Saturday by UAPD, who said the victim, 19, was being treated at DCH Regional Medical Center.

The victim said she met the suspect, Taylor Force, at a local bar and went back to his room at the fraternity house.

Police said it appears that parts of the encounter were consensual, but he had sex with the victim after she told him no and tried to push him off.

Police said that after receiving the initial medical information, processing the scene, reviewing video evidence and completing interviews, probable cause was found to arrest Force on first-degree rape charges.
