Fraternity offers reward in ASU rape case

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Almost a week after the rape of a young woman at an ASU fraternity house, that fraternity offered this statement.

"The members and alumni of the Pi Kappa Alpha Fraternity of Arkansas State University are outraged by the violent and criminal act that was perpetuated against a young lady who is a close and respected friend of many of us in this community. The victim is known by all of us to be a brave and exceptionally bright young lady. This attack on the morning of Sat. February 27, 2010 was committed by criminals who are not known to the victim nor to us."

The PIKE Fraternity and its associates also announced that they're supporting police authorities by providing reward money of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Anyone with information about the crime and/or criminals should contact the ASU Police Dept. at 870-372-2093.

If you are interested in making a contribution to the reward fund, you can mail your donations to:

Pike Reward Fun, c/o Heritage Bank
P.O. Box 3020
Jonesboro, AR 72403

Any funds that are not disbursed will returned to donors. All rewards will be determined and distributed by The Pike Reward Fund Committee. Anonymous tips welcome.
