According to Meadville Police an armed assault took place at Allegheny College. A female student was raped by an unknown man. Susan Salton is the Vice President for College Relations at the school and said she can’t elaborate on any other security measures at this time. “We have had a number of meetings and have responded appropriately,” she said.
