Ex-Stanford Swimmer Allegedly Rapes Woman In Public


Two bikers allegedly caught an ex-Stanford University student raping an unconscious woman on the university’s Palo Alto, California campus.

Brock Allen Turner, 19, is accused of raping a woman during the early hours of Sunday, Jan. 18, according to the Stanford Daily.

He’s charged with raping an intoxicated person, raping an unconscious person, sexual penetration with a foreign object of an intoxicated and unconscious woman, and assault with intent to commit rape.

The Los Angeles Times reports that two men riding their bikes allegedly discovered Turner raping the woman and chased after him. They eventually tackled him and held him while a third person called police.

Turner withdrew from Stanford on Tuesday and is barred from going on campus, Stanford University spokeswoman Lisa Lapin told the Times. The freshman was also on the school’s nationally ranked swim team.
