Ithaca, N.Y. — In February, Cornell police said that a woman may have been the victim of a drug-induced assault at a fraternity, the Cornell Sun reported at the time.

On Monday, The Sun published a story citing fraternity officials who said that the report of a drug-induced assault was unfounded.

The Sun reports:

“Claims that a woman was the victim of a drug-induced assault at a West Campus fraternity last semester were found unsubstantiated by Cornell Police, according to a statement from the Interfraternity Council.

In February, a woman claimed to be the victim of a drug-induced assault on February 24 at 118 McGraw Pl., the location of the Phi Gamma Delta fraternity, also known as “Fiji.” According to a report, the victim suffered complete memory loss after she consumed a drink given to her. Later, her friends found her and described her as being in a “disoriented, semi-conscious state.”

However, according to IFC’s statement, the claim was unfounded.

“After several months of thorough investigation by the Cornell University Police Department, the report of a drug-induced assault was not substantiated, and the case has been closed,” the statement said.
