Spring Break Rape Allegations in Gulf Shores, Alabama
Police say they are investigating an alleged rape in Gulf Shores, Alabama and it comes as spring break is in full swing.
Police are not saying if the alleged victim was a college student or if it happened indoors or outdoors. Authorities say a female called Tuesday night to report she had been assaulted. The incident happened in an area where large groups of college students have been congregating and near a strip of condos.
Police admit the crowds are larger this year. Lieutenant Bill Cowan with the Gulf Shores Police Department said, “We have to try and determine a scene if there is any evidence there. The victim can provide evidence and details as to the attack. Right now in Gulf Shores, there can be a lot of witnesses because of the east beach area has lots of people on it and lots of people may have seen something.”
