Baltimore police have arrested two men for the rape of a 16-year-old girl at a Johns Hopkins fraternity house off campus, officials confirmed.

Police responded to a report of rape in Baltimore on the morning of Nov. 2. The girl told police she was first forced to perform sexual acts and then raped by two unknown individuals in the bathroom of the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house during a Halloween party. The accused, 20-year-old Chaz Haggins and 19-year-old Ethan Turner, are not students at the university nor is the teenage victim, officials said.
