Woman Charged With Raping Female Roommate at Susquehanna University

Pratigya Thakur, a 19-year-old sophomore at Susquehanna University, has been arrested for allegedly raping her female roommate, according to a report from the New York Post. Thakur is accused of raping her female roommate and now finds herself facing a felony charge of rape, two misdemeanor charges of indecent assault and a summary charge of harassment

The alleged attack came after the two were drinking alcohol and smoking marijuana together.

From the report:

The roommate said she was singing and dancing inside their Hassinger Hall dorm room as she packed up her belongings ahead of a move into another university housing unit for the summer when she decided to lie down on Thakur’s bed because her own was covered with clothing and other possessions, the affidavit states.

Additional details read (WARNING: Graphic language):

The nightmarish assault kept going as Thakur grabbed her roommate’s hand and put it inside her vagina, the roommate said. Thakur also placed her fingers inside the victim’s vagina with such force that she scratched her roommate, causing her to bleed, the woman told police.

Thakur was released from custody on $10,000 cash bond.

A university spokesperson briefly commented on the matter but would not provide any details.

“Students who are accused of being in violation of the student code of conduct go through a student conduct judicial process, which could lead to sanctions up to and including expulsion,” spokeswoman Amanda O’Rourke said in a statement. “I cannot comment specifically on the status of this incident.”
