Family and friends of a young man accused of a recent sexual assault are shocked and dismayed. The 21-year old man has been charged with a crime in connection to an incident that took place on the campus of North Carolina State University in the early morning hours of a recent Sunday. The accusations against him are not in line with his reputation within the community, and many are watching to see if the charges will remain in place as the investigation continues.
The incident that led to the young man's arrest involved kidnapping, threatening and sexual assault that reportedly took place near the Free Expression tunnel on the school's Raleigh campus. There is no information given on the identity of the alleged victim, or if he or she is believed to have known the attacker. The young man charged in the incident turned himself in after police identified him using images from a surveillance video.
