Police and Eastern Michigan officials are investigating the reported rape of a student during a party at an off-campus fraternity house.

The Detroit News and The Ann Arbor News report that Kappa Phi Alpha fraternity has been suspended.

The incident was reported Friday. The 18-year-old woman says she was fondled by several men and raped by at least one of them after the lights were turned out in a bathroom.

The Ann Arbor News reports that the woman had been drinking and told police four men were inside the bathroom. She had been "affectionate" earlier with one of the men.

A dozen men were questioned by police and released.

Eastern Michigan was criticized two years ago after officials covered up the 2006 rape-slaying of a student in her dorm room.
