The Johnson County Attorney's Office and Iowa City Police Department are requesting the public’s assistance in further investigating a sexual assault alleged to have occurred Sept. 5, 2020, at the Iowa Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) Fraternity House on Ellis Avenue in Iowa City. Anyone with information on this alleged incident is encouraged to contact the Iowa City Police Department at 319-356-5275. The Department has previously and will continue to work closely with the Johnson County Attorney's Office on this case. We have and will continue to take allegations of sexual assault seriously and will investigate them to the fullest extent.

We understand that providing and showing support for sexual assault survivors is important. Peaceful protests are respected as a valued First Amendment Right. Violence and property damage diminishes the message of the protest and may further deter survivors from reporting sexual assaults. We encourage showing your support by demonstrating in a non-violent fashion.

Resources

If you or someone you know is aware of a sexual assault alleged to have occurred, please contact the Iowa City Police Department at 319-356-5275 or the University of Iowa Department of Public Safety at 319-356-3022. University of Iowa students may also contact the University's Title IX and Gender Equity Office at 319-335-6200.

Seeing media coverage of other sexual assaults is often difficult for survivors of sexual violence. We encourage all survivors and others who need support to contact the Rape Victims Advocacy Program (RVAP). RVAP provides support and resources to survivors and their allies.
