Man in custody after reports of Pr. George's Community College campus rape

A female Prince George's Community College student reported that she was raped outside a building on the school's Largo campus Wednesday afternoon, and police have in their custody a male suspect who is not a student at the school, a college spokeswoman said.

School spokeswoman Deidra Hill said the student told campus officers at about 2:30 p.m. Wednesday that she had been raped somewhere outside the Center for Advanced Technology, a building on the campus off of Largo Road.

Hill said Prince George's County police officers were on the scene and had in their custody a male suspect who apparently was not a student at the school.

Cpl. Mike Rodriguez, a county police spokesman, confirmed that police had been called about the attack and had made an arrest. He said he could not immediately confirm other details.

Hill said she did not know other details of the "alleged rape," including what the suspect was doing on campus. She said at about 3:40 p.m., she sent an e-mail to college staff members alerting them to the incident, and around the same time, a text message was sent to students.

She refused to share the contents of either message with the Washington Post, saying, "The primary purpose of the message was for students."
