University and Philadelphia Police are still investigating a report of an attempted rape at the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity house in January. University Police Detective Michael Carrol said Thursday investigators have not made any arrests in the case. Carrol declined to say when police would make a final decision on any possible arrests. Police said last month that they have identified a single suspect in the case who was positively identified by the alleged victim. They have declined to release the suspect's name or state if he is a student at the University. University Police detectives, along with the Philadelphia Police Sex Crimes unit, have been investigating the report since late March. The reported victim, a Harvard University student, told Harvard Police in March that she was the victim of a rape attempt at the fraternity's Superblock house January 26. University Police said they started investigating the report March 29 and said in early April they had narrowed the investigation down to one suspect. A Philadelphia Police spokesperson said at the time police asked the suspect to take a lie detector test.
