A woman told LSU police she was at the LSU lakes Oct. 7 when a group of men approached her and one of the men attacked and raped her while the others stood by and watched.
The woman said that when the group walked up to her on West Lakeshore Drive at about 7 p.m., one of the men grabbed her and raped her while the others stood around, LSU police spokesman Capt. Cory Lalonde said.
No other details on the incident were available, and police are declining to say whether the woman was an LSU student to protect her identity.
The woman did not report the incident to police until Saturday, and the woman and police could not find a time to meet until Tuesday, Lalonde said.
Since the area is a popular jogging and exercise spot that is on a busy road, Lalonde said he’s hopeful that someone may have seen something they didn’t think to report at first.
Anyone with information in the incident may call LSU police at (225) 578-3231 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
