A Penn State student has been charged with rape, sexual assault and two counts of indecent assault over a reported incident in September, State College police said.
Police responded to Mount Nittany Medical Center on Sept. 19 to investigate a reported sexual assault. A woman told police she woke up that morning in the apartment of Christopher Craig Ender, 20. The two had been at a party the night before, where both had been drinking, and ended up at his apartment, she told police.
She reported to police that the two kissed at his apartment, but that she didn’t want “further physical intimacy” with Ender. She reportedly passed out on his bed and awoke to find Ender having sex with her before losing consciousness again, according to the criminal complaint.
She woke up the next morning about 6 a.m. and went to the emergency room, police said.
In an Oct. 29interview with police, Ender denied the allegations, according to the criminal complaint. Heidi Fisher Eakin, of Lemoyne, was listed as Ender’s attorney on the criminal docket sheet. She did not return calls for comment.
Ender was arraigned Monday and is free on $50,000 unsecured bail. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Dec. 3.
