Briefly: Student reports rape at Crown St. house

An 18-year-old Southern Connecticut State University student reported that she was raped at a house party Thursday night at 395 Crown St., the New Haven Independent reported. The house, which is located between Park and Howe streets, is rented by several male SCSU students. The woman called police at 4 a.m. to report the rape. Police took six boys from the house, which was covered in beer cans and Solo cups, to the New Haven Police Department Headquarters for questioning Friday morning. Yale student Sam Post ’09, who lives next door to the house, said the residents of 395 Crown often throw loud parties and Thursday night was no exception. The NHPD and Southern Connecticut State University did not return calls for comment Sunday.
