McNeese State University Police arrested three suspects in connection with an alleged rape that happened in an on-campus residence hall early Friday morning.

Arrested Friday morning were Anthony Moore, 21, of Lake Charles, and Andre Frank, 20, also of Lake Charles.

A third suspect, Ivan Howard was arrested Friday evening.

McNeese Police Chief Cinnamon Salvador says that police received a call around 6 a.m. Friday morning reporting a rape that happened in a residence hall.

Authorities responded to the room. They accompanied the woman to a local hospital where she was treated and released.

Police Chief Salvador stated that within three hours, authorities had interviewed two of three suspects. Salvador says that based on their statements, the two men were arrested and booked into the Calcasieu Parish Correctional Center.

McNeese Police continue to investigate the incident, and have leads on a third possible suspect. According to Dr. Tony Osburn, McNeese Dean of Student Services, only one of the suspects is a student at McNeese.

The men were reportedly invited guests in a suite in the residence hall, and no forced entry was involved in the incident. Dr. Osburn said that having guests of the opposite sex in a room after visiting hours is a violation of the resident housing policy.

Osburn also said that the victim lives in a different suite in the same residence hall, and she was visiting in the same suite that the suspects were in.

Police say they believe alcohol may have been involved.
