Florida Atlantic University Student Raped at Step Show After Party: Boca Raton Police

Boca Raton Police are investigating after a Florida Atlantic University student was raped at a step show after party.

The incident happened back on April 12, after the victim had attended a step show at FAU, police said Friday. The student said she attended an after party called "Oil Spill" at the Wayne Barton Center in Boca.

The student had gone to the party with friends but they were separated sometime after 2 a.m. At one point the student, who said she had been drinking, was pulled up on stage by several males who took her behind a curtain and raped her, police said.

She left the stage and went outside, where she found a friend who took her back to her dorm room at FAU. She was later admitted to Boca Raton Regional Hospital.

"Boca Raton Police detectives have been interviewing the victim’s friends, witnesses and party goers, checking for video and thoroughly investigating the crime," police said in a statement.

Anyone with information is asked to call Palm Beach Crime Stoppers at 800-458-TIPS.
