University Police have a suspect in their investigation of a reported sexual battery case at a fraternity house over the weekend.

According to the UPD crime log, a sexual battery was reported around 2 a.m. Sunday morning in the Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity house located at Nine Fraternity Row.

UPD spokesman Capt. Jeff Holcomb said the victim is an 18-year-old woman. She is not a UF student.

According to Lt. Scott Summers, who works in the Criminal Investigations Division at UPD, the suspect is a male UF student.

He said the investigation is still open and ongoing.

“We’re trying to talk to people who might be possible witnesses,” he said.

No arrests had been made as of Tuesday evening.

Tau Epsilon Phi Fraternity received a one-year suspension from its national organization in November 2008 after 36 pledges were found kneeling shirtless on the basement floor.

Paige Crandall, then-interim Dean of Students, and UPD officers had entered the fraternity house receiving a call about possible hazing.

The fraternity house reopened in January.
