Rape reported at Stanford University, following 33 rape reports in 2016

- Stanford authorities said a young woman in her 20s reported being raped just after midnight on Monday on the east side of campus by a man in his 20s, and neither were students.

The Department of Public Safety posted the alert late Tuesday night and did not identify the suspect or victim. The woman told police that she knows who did it, but spokesman Bill Larson said no arrestes have been made and the case is actively being investigated.

This is not the first report of rape at Stanford this year. At least one other was reported in July, and two were reported about Sept. 30 and Oct 1.

Last year, Stanford reported 33 rapes, about three a month. In 2015, there were 25 rapes reported.

According to federal data compiled by the Washington Post in 2014, nearly 100 colleges and universities had at least 10 reports of rape on their campuses in that year. In that year, Stanford reported 26 rapes, or 1.5 per 1,000 students. Stanford was in the Top 10 list in 2014, but Brown, U Conn and Dartmouth took the No. 1, 2 and 3 slots, with more than 40 reports of rape each.
